A group of 50 hikers, including a couple of Canadians on holidays, departed from the Juno Beach Centre yesterday to walk in the footsteps of the Canadians both on Juno and inland, an event created by a French association called “Hikes for peace”. Our guide Caroline welcomed them at the Centre to provide them with a historical explanations of their itinerary. They departed for Bernières sur Mer to see Canada House, and then visited Garth’s Webb monument. They ended their hike at the Bény sur Mer Canadian cemetery before returning to the Centre.
An especially symbolic hike of roughly 20km for the 70th anniversary!
Thank you to all the hikers and Caroline!
