Mont. St. Michel

We have been wanting to go to Mont. St. Michel for a while now.  I actually saw this place on Pinterest and told Nate that we had to go here!  It was built in the 700's and has been an Abby and a prison.
Now, it is a giant tourist town.  
We all enjoyed mussels for lunch!
We needed to fuel up for our hike up to the Abby.  There were a TON of stairs!
More stairs!
At the top!  These jackets didn't stay on for too long!
It would be fun to see the view when the tides are in.
We spent about two and a half hours exploring and then headed back to Granville (where our hotel is).  
Snuggling on the shuttle!
I took so many pictures!  This place was breathtaking!

We walked around looking for dinner.  We found this place called Au Pirate.  This place had to be great!  No, we ordered drinks and then realized they stopped selling food at 4:00.  So, we gulped our drinks and found a sandwich place.  
This may be the nastiest beach ever.  It's worse than Galveston!  This is our hotel. 
Unintentionally, we headed to the beach as the tide was coming in.  
The boys liked running from the tide.  
We have had a great time seeing the beaches of Normandy!
