Today our post is another visit to a historical site. 100 years ago, World War I was being fought in trenches up and down Belgium. We had the opportunity to visit a German trench. This trench was originally filled in, but one day, a farmer found the ruins in his field and worked to excavate and restore them.
|There were poppies everywhere in June. These were in the median as we drove to|
the trenches. The poppies are still a symbol of the sacrifices of the Great War.
|Sarah and Robin in the trenches. Notice how my head comes up over the top.|
To stay out of sight, a soldier my height would have to crouch through this portion of the trench.
