The Conversation - Mont St. Michel
Because we stayed overnight on Mont St. Michel we had the place to ourselves in the evening after the day-trippers had left. And early the next morning it was so lovely to wander the quiet ramparts and narrow streets, and really appreciate the charm of this French village built around its towering monastery. The tidal island is very tiny and houses are crammed together cheek-by-jowel, but on our walks we still discovered several green terraces and even a little cemetery.
Jesseca, our guide for the tour of the abbey, was wonderful. We learned that there are now only a small handful of nuns and priests based on the Mont, so when I saw these two on one of the alleys, I had to snap a photo. I wonder what they were discussing.
