There was a cruel machine in the shape of a winch which pulled a sled up the slopes to the abbey. The winch power was supplied by a wheel , much the same as the wheel we see mice running inside, only 3 or 4 metres in diameter.

... a boulangarie as it was now 3.30 pm and we hadn't had lunch. We sat on the promenade and watched the hundreds of people on the beach - it looked like a hundreds and thousands sandwich. We decided a dip in the English Channel was in order before our showers. The tide was rapidly coming in as it does here.
