Mont St-Michel

Today we ventured about an hour and a half southwest to the majestic Mont St-Michel. On this gray and overcast day, we were inspired by the site of the abbey rising up through the fog as we approached. The abbey has been an important pilgrimage center since A.D. 708 and a favorite site for French royalty through the ages. The town sits on an island surrounded by The English Channel. The tide sends the ...

Today we walked Omaha Beach and got a good visual on the magnitude of the D-Day invasion. On June 6, 1944 the Allies finally gained a foothold in France and doomed Nazi Europe to failure. We then drove to the deeply moving Normandy American Cemetery where 9,387 American soldiers lie under simple, but beautiful marble crosses or Stars of David. The Garden of the Missing features the names of 1,557 soldiers who went missing ...

Narrow cobbled streets, harbourside pathways, art galleries, craft shops, and restaurants. Restaurants galore. We've never seen so many restaurants crammed into one small area. It's almost as if the town decreed that feeding people was a town statute. ...

Important things first. After getting up I go for a stroll to the bakery to get some croissants for brekkie. 8 o'clock on a Sunday morning I meet about a dozen people if that. I suppose it's still pretty cold, maybe 4-5 degrees. After brekkie we decided to go to Caen as Honfleur would be pretty busy with tourists on a Sunday and the sky looks pretty grey. The GPS takes us along the coast through all the little towns but they are all joined to each other so the speed is ...
