Pillars of the Earth

Taken at Mont St-Michel, a rocky island about 1 km off the coast of Normandy, France – population: 44.  It has been a stronghold (6th and 7th C), a prison (18th C), and  a monastery.  It’s depicted in the Bayeux Tapestry which commemorates the 1066 Norman conquest of England and it is an extraordinarily interesting place to visit and explore.

  1. Oh, Lynne, I LOVED Mt. St. Michel! We spent Bea’s 6th birthday there, and after dinner most of the tourists went home. My most vivid memory is the night walk we took, stopping to look down upon bats feeding like swallows. Beautiful photos!
