mont st michel

I’m slow at posting today because I’m hanging out with my Mom seeing the sites. She leaves tomorrow so we’re trying to pack in as much as we can.

On Saturday we went to Mont St. Michel. Wow! It made me feel like I was visiting that city in Lord of the Rings (Ugh. I can’t remember the name. Help me out, please.) It’s a city built on a mountain, with a picturesque little village of shops and restaurants to wander through as you climb higher and higher and finally reach the abbey/cathedral at the top. But it’s not just a mountain. It’s an island too! During our visit, the weather happened to be just right and the views went on forever.

Best discovery: I found out there are several hotels right on the island. This information is totally public knowledge, but I had no idea.

Wouldn’t that be a romantic getaway?
