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
