France: Arrival at Chartres Cathedral in a special day, 22 August at 4.30 p.m. - Coincidence?

France: Sunset and night in Mont St. Michel

The magical moment of this day was... the sunset.
The abbey at night, with candle light and musicians playing inside was... unreal. You had to be there to experience the uniqueness of it all.

Mont St. Michel - simply out of this world

This is an amazingly beatiful place, it is located on an island just off the coast of the region of Lower Normandy in northern France. The island is best known as the site of the spectacular and well-preserved Norman Benedictine Abbey of St. Michel, at the peak of the rocky island, surrounded by the winding streets and convoluted architecture of the medieval town.
Its worth coming back, for sure!

Normand friends we met along the way

We were inspired and 'wrote' a poem

In Jacques Prevert house, we serie invited to compose a poem, chosing bits of sentences by Prevert, from 5 diferent boxes. This is what we came up with.

Cap de La Hague, land's end in the north of France

Normandie - Honesty basket , buy and leave money for the young crafters!

Normandie - Omanville-la-Petite, a village where Jacques Prévert had aperfect house

Normandie, the birthplace of painter Millet - too beautiful.
