Le Mont Saint Michel

Le Mont Saint Michel, a tidal island in northern France, has history dating back to the 5th century. Once an abbey, then a prison, and now a national historical monument and UNESCO site, this little commune island was well worth the trip.

A church choir group from the US, also must have felt it well worth the trip.
They traveled across the ocean to come here to preform for strangers.
We were lucky to enjoy a few minutes of their music as well.

These biscuit tins were just so darn fancy schmancy that I was drooling over them..not for the biscuits inside at all, but for the fun of having such a cool tin. We passed off though- at 20 euro a tin, I had to sadly, begrudgingly,  decided to remember them via a photo instead.
