On the Rock, Mont Saint-Michel

Panorama from the heights of Mont Saint-Michel
~~~~~


Looking toward the monastery from the cemetery. 
There are 300 steps to the abbey.


The Cloister


The tide is out.

And, oh, so many doors.  They were all very different and all works of art in their own right.  I can only imagine how many hours it took to build a door without power tools.  The sweet beauty of them all created by hands that loved and caressed the wood.  And what is behind each door, a laundry, small chapel, a monk's cell?  They are treasures all.

Thanks be to God!

 I'm here to play and invite you to join Mersad at Through My Lens.  Should be fun!




Please visit Judith at Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday and share in the beauty offered there.

Mosaic Monday


I think you should take some time to visit Imagin-in-ing.  You're sure to enjoy it!

  4. Loved our trip to Mont St. Michel a few years back. It was a cold gray winter day, but I did manage to get a photo of a great red door!

  11. I have had a lot of trouble loading your post and with typing the comment. We have a slow connection here in the country and the music on your blog makes it near impossible!!! Love the photos when they eventually downloaded, we were there 2 years ago. Diane
