WWII Trip...Part 2

The boys and Cody went on the second part of the WWII trip earlier this month.  They spent a lot of time on the bus riding from one "Pill box" to the next.  This trip was less impressive and informative than the first one.  They did see the beach where the Allied Forces landed, but it was just a beach.  I don't have the description this time (misplaced the Preview, if I find it, I'll update here).

The highlight of this trip was the food at the Agriturismo. Overall they said that the trip was too long and was very repetitive with all the stops at the pillboxes.  They said they would not recommend this one unless they shortened it up or added something different to it.

This post will contain mostly photos since they didn't really like the trip as much as the last one and didn't have much to tell me.

Blood red orange grove.  They stopped here to see another pill box and the owner of the property allowed them to pick some oranges.  They are super delicious!
