Today we debated whether to take an expensive Normandy tour or an expensive Mont Saint Michel tour. Being tightwads, we decided to rent a car, buy a book and take our own tours. Today we drove an hour and a half in the pouring rain to Le Mont Saint Michel. I predicted the rain would stop the minute we got there, and it did! It started again while we were inside the Abbey for a tour, but stopped as soon as we finished and then completely cleared for the rest of the day. It was such a beautiful place and the cute little streets up the hill were so fun. Unfortunately we did not stay for high tide to see the little island surrounded by water.
