World War I (The Great War) Visit to France

Redington and I visited France again this Fall Half-Term break. This time we visited WWI battlefields in the Somme and near Ypres. In addition to the battlefields we got to practice our French and managed a few tasty meals.

I have deviated from my past blog style and and used Google photo albums as a new format. My blog is very photo (as opposed to text) oriented and as such Blogger is very slow when dealing with photos. The photo album format is much easier to build and edit and can be linked to the same old blog site.

I have used the captions in the photos to hold rather extensive text and so they work best when you click on a photo and then advance one photo at a time using the arrow buttons.
