For our final day in Normandy, we spent a magical morning at Mont St. Michel, and ended with some time at Omaha Beach.
Mont St. Michel is a rocky tidal island in Normandy, and a truly magical place. When the tide comes in, the road connecting Mont St. Michel to the mainland is buried beneath the water at which point it becomes disconnected from the mainland!
While the island has been a strategic point in holding fortifications, it is also well known for the Saint-Michel monastery. You have to climb on top of the island to get to the monastery, which is just massive. You don’t expect something of this size on what is literally an island for half the day. One of my favourite experiences (I tend to say that a lot, but I swear I mean it!)
