Anyway, it is one of THE places you're supposed to see but some how over the 40 plus years that I've been coming to France I never went there...until now. Wife and I saw it was right on our route back from our Brittany rental back to Amsterdam so we decided to do a stop over. It was well, well worth the time and every bit deserving of its reputation. We really lucked out. It is way before peak season. There were a number of (mostly Asian) tour groups visiting but we were able to time our touring of the abbey between various groups so we mostly were almost by ourselves.
But first a final shot from Plougrescant
This is the little boulangerie (bakery)/--> épicerie (small grocery) where I went every morning to get our bread. The custom of the local bakery seems revived, alive and well in France
And now the main even, LE MONT-SAINT-MICHEL
(Le Mont-Saint-Michel is named after the Archangel Michael, my namesake. I've always felt that the Archangel and I are kind of buds because of this)
