Le Mont Saint Michel

Le Mont St Michel

Today I went to Le Mont Saint Michel, where it sure rained a lot. Pretty much all my umbrella managed to protect from the rain was my camera (which was the important thing, really) – from the shoulders down I ended up quite wet (I carried my camera on my shoulder, right under the umbrella, when not in use – and have an accidental photo or two of my chin to prove it, too :-)). The locals have taught me that weather in Normandy can be summed up as “Apres la pluie … encore la pluie”. Which, yes, I can see that. (My trousers are still wet – and drying in the shower.)

Somewhere in that grey haze lies the rest of France.

Misty Morning, Bayeux, France

Misty Morning, BayeuxI have a lot of photos to look at and sort, and every evening just before I get to my hotel/motel/B&B/thingybob room of the day I think “today I’ll do it!” – and every evening, as soon as I sit down in my hotel room and switch on my computer I do look at the photos of the day … and then my energy leaves me and I don’t do anything else except download them onto my small external hard drive for backup storage. So, hmm, more photos from my trip will probably show up in the coming weeks and months, but all hopes of chronology are to be abandoned. So, today, a photo from this morning – with a title that totally plays on The Pogues’ “Misty Morning, Albert Bridge”.

(Photo selection totally helped by the fact that I did not take many photos today – spent most of the day in places where photography was not allowed – and didn’t buy *anything* in the Bayeux Tapestry Museum, even though I had totally allocated a maximum spending limit to myself, in preparation for the possible danger of lots of enticing things. And then … nothing. I mean, lots of things, but 90% of them were gaudy T-Shirts and mugs and rulers and magnets and mugs and … that simply said “I was in Bayeux” and had one of the riders from the Tapestry on them. [The rest were super expensive pillow cases]. Which: I really don’t need. A DVD with a film on it that simply starts at one end of the tapestry and slooowly moves to the other, narrating what one sees and stuff about the tapestry’s history was something I would totally have bought [to then donate to the Uni Library]. But the only DVD they had was a cheesy animated version of the tapestry. Which … not so much. [Most dangerous gift shop I have been in thus remains, by a long shot, the Lewis & Clark trail shop in Oregon. They admittedly had tacky things, too, but also lots of interesting history books and interesting high quality merchandise. {Bayeux shop: books on Norman/English/whatever history: sell them!}]. [And the D-Day museum shop was no better – instead of the Tapestry guy they had the names of the landing sites on their things, but the same “I was in Bayeux” slogan. Books or info about D-Day … nope. {Which I wasn’t looking for, but some of the other visitors were a bit disappointed about. (And now to close a gazillion brackets).}.].).

And also, I think, to sleep. It’s almost 9pm, and thus totally time to sleep. :-) Lot’s to see & do tomorrow!
