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!
