|Le Mont St-Michel is basically a church on
a mountain in the sea in France...but it is truly impressive. Maybe
if I feel inspired one of these days, I'll fill this page up with a little
history about it. It is situated in the Bay of Mont St-Michel, which
has strong currents, quicksands, and tides that periodically cover the
parking lot ouside the walls.
|After a relatively cloudy morning, the afternoon sun
illuminated the Mont, providing for some great photo-ops.
|All I wanted to do was walk on the beach. Once
again, it was a long weekend, and there were loads of people finishing
up their holidays on the coast. We found some really cool Delft shells
(strangely enough) on the beach here.
|Nice backdrop. It's kind of like a sand castle
that doesn't easily get knocked down by waves. And we got to see
all this without melting the chocolate...imagine!
