23 April 14 – Nijmegen Part Deux

AHA! I was going through my pictures and I found the rest of the ones I took from Nijmegen! I think I have Alzheimer’s….I forgot that I was at the opening ceremonies as well. Here are some more pictures to go along with my original story.

The bus ride to Vimy Ridge


Me in one of the trenches at the frontlines of Vimy Ridge


The Canadian Front Line…and if you look closely, way in the background, that’s the German Front Line….that’s how close they were to each other during the war.


The Givenchy Road Canadian Cemetery at Vimy…such well kept Cemeteries in Europe


Too many tombstones with epitaph to count.


The Team at the entrance to the camp where we stayed….love the entrance!


The Nijmegen 4 days march opening ceremonies.


The Canadian Cemetery in Holland. You can see how hot and dry it was there….


The painted rocks, flag and pictures that I laid at the grave site of Donna’s father, Private Alfred T Sedgman


The cadet’s that went to the school that was named after him in Southern Ontario…tough kids!


A calliope in Nijmegen town


Interior of one of the oldest churches in the town



One of the activities we participated in once the marches were cancelled…trying to stay cool.


And finally, a view of the Bridge too far in Eindhoven from the clock tower window.


That’s it for today

I am an average woman, of average age, leading an average life...at least on the surface. Sixteen years ago, I chose to spice up the average-ness of my life by putting on combat boots. Some of my blogs reflect my experiences while wearing them. Some blogs are of my passion and hobby, birding and bird photography...and some, well, can't help but blogging about average things living an average life! Enjoy!
