Our house in Caumont. . .
This part of the northern French countryside is dotted with little war cemeteries. We stopped at a couple.

Then we went to an Abbey (L'Abbay du Mont-Saint-Eloi) that was bombed in WWI when it was being used as a French observatory. It looked so unusual from the road we just had to see what it was.

There were these teeny little buildings in the oddest places as we drove around. I'm still not sure what they are, little shrines or something?
Here was a WWII cemetery:
After the sadness of visiting all those war cemeteries, we headed to Wissant to the French coast to see the ocean. The cool thing is that we could even see the white cliffs of Dover from France (or we're pretty sure that's exactly what we saw). It was a quaint little town.

We played on the beach for a while and waited too long to eat. Unfortunately, dinner in France doesn't really started until about 8pm. We were starving and made a pretty poor choice for dinner. We just wanted somewhere that would feed us right away. It was so boring I don't even remember what we eat . . . a wasted eating opportunity in France.
