Mont Saint-Michel: View From the Top 9

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 18 February 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

Bulldozers sweep away the sand and mud that builds up on the causeway at high tides, in order to provide parking space for the many tourists visiting Mont Saint-Michel.

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!

Amazed at the way this looks . . the cars give this scale, too.

I see where they have moved mud in the bus parking area. Does the roadway stay dry at high tide? A cool shot, Daryl.

@Steve Rice: Thanks Steve; I found this image of what it looks like at high tide (didn't see it myself unfortunately):

A remarkable place, and very busy too. Is parking more important than the eco..?
