Yesterday, on our team’s day off, my good pal Levi and I decided to go on an adventure. We drove 2.5 hours north into Normandy to see a famous French Landmark…. Mont Saint Michel. Now, Levi says it’s one of the 7 Wonders of the Modern World, but I couldn’t find it on any of these lists. Hmmm, Levi…..
But anyways, it is a very beautiful place nonetheless. Mont Saint Michel is a church built on a very distinct peninsula of Normandy, in the northwest of France. What makes it distinct is that at high tide, the peninsula is entirely covered up! In my picture above, you can see that Levi and I saw the Mont when the tide was low. In fact, there was almost no water around at all. But as you can see below, at high tide, the Mont really becomes an island.
So it’s a very beautiful place, and we figured since we had the day off and we may never get the chance to come back, why not??
Mont Saint Michel is a very old place with a long, interesting history. So long in fact, that I will let you read all about it here instead of writing it myself! Instead, I’ll just share some of my pictures.
