Then and Now...

On our recent trip to Normandy with Curt and Terry, we visited Mont St Michel. This is an amazing site and is one of the most visited sites in France.

It has changed a lot over the years. Not Mont St Michel itself, but the access to it. Whereas one used to be able to drive up near the island and park pretty close to it, now one has to park in a huge parking lot and take a shuttle bus to get closer to the entrance. The new access is still under construction and will  be finished soon carrying many tourists from the parking area right to the main entry way. From there, one can walk up to the top to the church. A new dam has also been built to facilitate the flow of the tide in and out of the local rivers.

But, some things stay the same,
