sculptorMount St. Michelle is a tidal island in Normandy, France. The location of the monastery on a small island just a few hundred meters from land makes it possible for pilgrims to reach the monastery at low tide, but when the tide comes, the fighter will be stranded, driven or submerged, a good place to protect. The island was unconquered during the hundred years of war; a small garrison resisted the full-scale British attack of 1433.
sculptorThe monastery of Mount Saint-Michel, a tidal island in Normandy, France, about a kilometer from the northwest coast of France and on the mouth of the Cusnon River near Afranche, is an important part of the town structure built by feudal society. The top is God, and the bottom is the Abbey. Down here, the hall, then the warehouse and the house, and at the bottom (outside the wall) the house of fishermen and peasants. Since 1862, the Abbey has been protected as a historical site in France.
M32***23If you want to feel small and insignificant, Milford Sound is the place for you. As you drive halfway along Milford Road, these mountain giants tower over you, everywhere, and you will see spectacular sights. If you are lucky to go there, then you must also make a cruise. Rain, hail or sunshine, this place will leave you breathless.
m35***24When I went to this attraction, the sun was shining and the weather was particularly good. There are many gardeners in the park. The environment is great all day. There are detailed descriptions of war zones in the park. The rows are neatly arranged. The environment of the cemetery is very good.
门子乀Not only is there a US military cemetery here, but on the sands of Omaha Beach, you can also see the rusty remains of the war fortifications of the year. There is also a landing monument on the beach, and the beach is overlooked from the heights from the American cemetery.

At the Cherbourg Harbour in France. Along the breakwater of Fort de Querqueville for some sight seeing. If you’re crossing during the holidays, expect crowds of people boarding ships for crossing.
#mint Saint Michel# One of the ancient historical site, always crowed during summer. It has a long history. Nice place to visit
This castle called Le Mont Saint Michel in the French Normandy is the most romantic and epic place in France. If you are going to get engaged - this is the place for you!
You see Sunrise, you see sunsets, but have you ever watched a moon rise? This one over the water at Juno Beach, FL occured after a storm had taken place earlier that day. The clouds moved out and the moon was able to shine in all her glory. Just luminous. #happynewyear
Sunsets do not have to be colorful to be magestic. This sunset at Juno Beach in Florida can still make you appreciate nature. Juno Beach is a city of less than 4,000- so you get a feel of "Old Florida". It is a great place to visit with young children because they can play in the sand and surf. #happynewyear
Located in Palm County not too far from West Palm Beach, FL is Juno Beach. This is not as well known a location as some of the other beaches in Florida, but it is lovely just the same. Not usually crowded and parking is easy to find. #happynewyear
Notre Dame de Grace, Honfleur - France: A historical site with half an hour walk from the city. It is located in the mountain so we have to walk up by following the road to get there. Or you can also drive there but the road is quite small. This is a must to go if you visit Honfleur.
Honfleur - France: A couple hours drive from Paris. This is a lovely town with old style building. We can take a walk around the city and enjoy nice Seafood meals there during the day. There are a lot of restaurants located nearby the pier. There is also an old church located up on the hill which take half an hour walk only. 🛥🛥🛥
France, Mont Saint-Michel, laughs at the tides and rises
Mont Saint-Michel, and the friends call it the holy mountain.
Say it is a mountain, you don't think that you go to the holy mountain, you can see the mountain view, the rolling hills, or the cloud sea ladder.
wrong! The holy mountain is not the Five Sacred Mountains.
Mont Saint-Michel is the third largest holy place in the Catholic Church except Jerusalem and the Vatican. In the 8th century AD, Cardinal Aube built a small church on the top of the mountain. In the period of 1211-1228, the Mayer's Monastery was built on the mountain.
Sacred Mountain is not only a pilgrimage site for Catholics, but also a favorite of tourists.
During the day, the holy mountain is surrounded by large sand mud. When the tide rises in the evening, the tide will flood the shoal of the holy mountain to the land, making the holy mountain an island.
During the day, the island looks very cold, but at night, this island has only a low-key share.
wrong! The holy mountain is not an ordinary island. In the daytime, the holy mountain is also approachable, but in the evening, the holy mountain is absolutely proud of the rivers and lakes!
Tourists from afar, this is the beautiful night view. The
tide rises and falls brings beautiful scenery and also the outcome of the war.
In the English-French Hundred Years War between 1337 and 1453, 119 French soldiers hid in the monastery on the hill and fought the British for 24 years! Because every time as long as it stays for a long time, the tide rises up, it will drown the British army to attack the mountain, which has won valuable rest time for the French defenders. In this protracted war, the Holy Mountain is the only place in France that has not fallen.
Hugo once said that Mont Saint-Michel is as important to France as the pyramid to Egypt.
