Bayeux and Le Mont Saint Michel

Bayeux Cathedral right out our hotel window.
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.

This is an Internet picture to show what it would look like at high tide.
