Morning on the Mont
We scurried out to see the tide at about 8:30,and it had come in around Mont St. Michel, making it almost an island. High tide was scheduled for 9:17, so we again went to the front gates to watch it rise.
After breakfast we toured the Abbey which is at the top of Mont St. Michel. We happened in during mass, so the kids and I stayed. Q and M even carried candles up at offertory with other children. The sound of voices singing in that space was spectacular.
Sean hooked up with his buddy Luke who shared some interesting details about the Abbey with us.
Too soon it was time to go, and we headed back out with the tide. Along the way, we passed many pedestrians making the "pilgrimmage" to the Mont just like in the past.
