Omaha Beach today and the sea wall which was piled high with American military personnel for hours, on D Day June 6, 1944. The sea wall was the only cover, for the lucky ones, who made it off the beach. They were pinned down here for many hours, stacked on top of each other, until the German guns could be silenced, by other troops who managed to blast through the sand dunes, further along the beach, eventually taking the Germans gun positions from behind..
This 1960's home made over, is real treat. With beautiful views garnered from a wonderfully open planed home. This one really is worth a second look. For more detail and a video of the property, go here.
How we tackled the Antarctic vortex in Sydney on Sunday last....Well we took a brisk walk around the historic military defences on South Head via Watsons Bay. The biggest Beach House Brat said he ticked something off the bucket list too.....
