Today was to turn out to be e real treat. On the advice of the lady who owns the hotel, we decided on a sightseeing trip to visit the abbey of Le Mont-Saint-Michel (http://www.ot-montsaintmichel.com/en/histoire.htm
Words can't really describe the sheer scale of the abbey and the village surrounding it. Suffice to say that its big, and grand, and imposing, and beautiful. It's easy to see why it was listed as a world heritage sight by UNESCO. If you get the chance, go and see it.
After our evening meal (another gastronomic triumph from a small restaurant in the back streets), its time to plan tomorrows driving. Do we go to Rouen or head straight into Paris and get ready to meet Jake and Sam when they fly in? Decisions decisions.
