Mont St. Michel
I have done some mini blogging in the captions of some of my photos at PicasaWeb, about
- our visit to Mont St. Michel (tidal island monastery which was used as a prison in the French Revolution and after which Minas Tirith from Lord of the Rings was modeled),
- Omaha Beach & Museum & Cemtery (where American forces landed on D-Day),
- Bayeux Cathedral (next to where they keep the Bayeux Tapestry, a medieval artwork which is 50 cm tall and 70 m long (20 in by 230 ft), depicting the Norman Conquest of 1066),
- Juno Beach (where Canadian forces landed on D-Day),
- and the autumn leaves in England.
I've been experimenting with exporting photos directly from iPhoto to PicasaWeb. If you are someone I have met face to face and you want to see other photos with the faces of my family in them, let me know by comment or email and I can email you the link to that different album.
In case it's easier, here is the page with links to all my public picasa web albums in one spot.

We did almost exactly the same Normandy tour (sans kids) back in 2001 and had a blast... makes us jealous (though the weather here in San Jose is pretty nice at the moment)
