A view of the abbey from the town below, March 2007. Our hotel room is one of those windows on the lower left.
This photo is from March of 2007 when Ken and I stayed on the Mont Saint Michel for a night. It was just before we brought Callie home, so we were dogless. In the evening, after most of the daytime visitors left the island, we heard the sirens and the public announcement about the tide coming in. Then, at dusk, we saw the water sweep across the mud flats like a tidal wave. It's the only time I've actually seen that happen, even though I've been to the Mont several times over the years.
