You're the top

At the top of the Mont Saint-Michel is the abbey church. Its spire, topped with a gilded statue of Saint Michel, rises to 157 meters (515 feet) above the bay. The statue was removed and restored in 2016, then returned to its perch atop the abbey's spire.

I didn't like the color version, so here it is in black and white. Digitized color slide, January 1992.

I've started cutting the grass again. Yesterday I did the north forty as I planned and later cut the grass in the strip between our hedge and the road. Today I'll do the south forty, then it'll be time to gather the fallen apples so I can tackle the west forty, maybe on Thursday.


  1. I like the B&W shot. And now I'll finish singing the rest of the song... I’m a worthless check, a total wreck, a flop. But if baby... Thanks

  2. Love the black and white.

  3. Made it up there last summer- your photo makes it look old like it is.

  4. mitch, well, that is the tricky part of the song, isn't it!

    judy, I didn't cut the grass after all. Too hot.

    bettyann, :)

    evelyn, I admire you and Esta for doing the climb!
