Today we made our way to the UNESCO site of Mont Saint-Michel and the surrounding bay. At high tide the Abbey is totally surrounded by water, and twice a year (at highest tide) can only be reached by boat.
It is a Benedictine Abbey dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel. A small church was originally built in 708 high on a mountain of solid granite. Because of its location, by the 13th century it became church, village, and military fortification.
Did you try the salt marsh Lamb?
Not yet. We hope that we can order lamb this evening, but did not eat at St Michel.
Long time no see and speak. It looks like everything is well with you guys and that you are enjoying retirement. Great photos of Mont Ste Michel. When I was younger I visited it several times. One day Cathy Anne and I will make our way there. Cheers and have a great trip.
