June 15 Afternoon: Mont Saint Michel

After settling in at Les Blotteries we took off for Mt St Michel. We were tired but knew that late afternoon was a good time to visit because most of the tour groups leave around four. We got there at 4:30 and found the number of visitors very manageable. We began the long trek up the stairs to the cathedral. The day was cold and soon began to rain. We ducked inside and followed the self-guided tour of the cathedral. We visited many different rooms and walked up and down many stairs. It was well worth the tired feet and backs. When we emerged the tide was rushing in. The speed was amazing. We stopped at the Brit Hotel on the way back to the B&B and had a real gourmet dinner. Judy was happy to have finally had the kind of food she expected to find in France. We got home tired and happy.
