View of Mont Saint-Michel

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 17 January 2011 in Architecture.

Leaving the English winter behind, I'm returning to some photos from our trip to France in September last year.

We took a day trip from Paris to Mont Saint Michel in Normandy, well worth the long drive. It was great to be able to visit this famous location, steeped in history.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

A beautiful rendition of this world famous location! We once had a documentary on TV (Japanese do documentaries on EVERYTHING and they do it well) showing all the details and corners of this place...buildings, streets, shops, people....Fascinating it was!
