Mont St. Michel Abbey - Day 5, Part 1

Waking up in a place like Mont St. Michel is almost like waking up in a dream. On this particular morning, we ventured to the abbey to catch a glimpse of how life was centuries ago.
This was the view from our barracks style hotel room. If you notice, the previous evening (and actually just minutes before this picture) the sand bar was covered by high tide.

The church that sits atop the abbey.

Biggest fireplace I have ever seen - can't imagine how hot a fire of that size must have been.

While we dragged our overly large suitcases down the cobbled streets in the rain, these adorable children were on their way to the abbey for a field trip.
