Mont St Michel

It was a fine day when we visited Mont St Michel. The skies was a beautiful blue, sunny and windy. We were lucky this one day in winter. The tourist crowd was significantly lesser and we were able to enjoy much of the beauty of this little town.

We took the local shuttle bus to the town. We didn’t know we could walk, till later we saw some people strolling along the only path leading to the town.  Anyway it was good that we took the bus because if we did walk the wind and sun would have not been in our favour 🙂

Alittle fact : Did you know that Disney’s Rapunzel castle is modelled after this place?

The quaint charm of this old winding streets, though entirely touristic, under this beautiful morning light made me feel like I was going to buy my first wand along diagon alley! I love all the unique and cute signs like the one below : The mermaid, Crepe Cafe.

The view from the foot of the abbey was amazing. It was low tide but such an amazing view to see nothing but miles and miles of empty land. Nothing is build around or near it and it used to be pilgrimage path for those strong in faith.
