The morning was devoted to transcribing the rest of the mayor’s interview. I realized I missed so much in the interview and learned much more once I transcribed our discussion! I added a few bites into the show that supported participating in solidarity by paying your taxes and adding to the ‘we feel free’ in France despite paying taxes.
After a lovely lunch in the courtyard we went to Omaha Beach because it was hot hot hot and Susanna thought we should make use of such a hot day by going for a swim (before the weather turned rainy again). We took her advice and swam in the ocean. It was shallow and cool. Very relaxing. We finished the day by visiting the American Cemetery. Very sombre and I was overcome with emotion.
