Le Mont-Saint-Michel, France - Day 6

Located on and island on the north western coast of France in Normandy, 
Mont-Saint Michel is a monastery and a community, population 44. 
It is an island about .6 miles from the coast, made accessible by foot at low tide. 
The narrow walkway toward the top and entrance of the monastery is 
surrounded by shops, restaurants, and pubs. 





I climbed the steps until I decided it would be in my best interest
to turn back and find a pleasant place to 
have a cup of tea.  Jody(teacher/chaperone) joined me.
I asked for black tea, and it was very good. 
Thes Parneys
Maison Richard Depuis 1892
Gold Breakfast blend of Ceylon, Assam and Darjeeling

 Jody asked for green tea. 
She and I made our way by trolley to the little town 
with more shops and restaurants
 where I enjoyed the best meal on the entire trip, a delicious sea bass. 
(forgot to take a photo until after I ate some of the ratatouille)
 The app Gluten Free Restaurant Card is a must when traveling internationally. 
I made copies for the tree of us in our group.

I think letting the others climb the rest of those steps was a wise decision, especially since you found not only tea but a good meal after you turned around. I will share the info about that app with a friend who is gluten free. Thanks!

This is definitely on my list if I ever get back to France. So glad you were able to find a good cup of tea and a delicious meal.

Oh, I want to go there! A friend of mine just spent two weeks in France and she visited too. And of course I am enjoying seeing all the tea stops you made along the way …
