France Day 4: Le Mont-Saint-Michel

by Steve Ray on June 7, 2019

After the busy activities and a long day yesterday for D-Day, today was a nice rest and catch up day for the group.

We started out with breakfast — sad to leave this beautiful Château in Normandy but we now drive to Le Mont-Saint-Michel, a city and a magnificent church and monastery. This is the 2nd most visited site in France.

Mass at St. Peter’s Church, lunch in the quaint village, touring the upper Church and monastery 390 steps up!) and then on to our renovated convent hotel in Le Tronchet.
