Okay, the Germans built a few thousand bunkers as part of the Atlantic Wall. Some were log and sandbag; some were reinforced concrete; some were rock and brick; and, a few others made good use of available resources. However, they lost and the French were left with thousands that were built such that taking them out could/would take out whole neighborhoods. So, what to do?
In this case, someone built a home/apartments into the bunker. A storm might flood them, but otherwise it is unlikely to take out the core. Just one of the imaginative uses to which I saw used bunkers put.
There is more to come, but I apparently shot some 2,500 photos that now need to be processed. I also shot video, and in addition to needing to upgrade software ($$) I need to learn new software to process it since a computer upgrade took out the easy options (no longer supported, of course). So, there is more to come, and I will be flooding here and over at LaughingWolf.net in the days ahead. In fact, if you would like to see some photos of Montmartre, Paris in the early morning, click here. Also, a tribute to a good man who left us about the time I returned, go here.
I can't wait to share more of Normandy with you, and hope you will enjoy it.
