France--Day 1-Paris to Normandy and Mont Saint Michel

I am just going to post a few pictures from our days here--I will do a detailed trip review later with more pictures!

We landed in Paris 6 hours late so our day did not go as planned. We drove about 4 hours just in time to see Mont Saint Michel at sunset. We could not get a good picture but it was beautiful! It was so green in Normandy. The picture below illustrates just how green the grass is here with Mont Saint Michel in the distance.

Here is our hotel, Chateau de Bouceel. It was AMAZING. I would recommend it to anyone coming to Brittany or Normandy. I want to go back one day since we only got to spend one day there. The owner is so interesting and he has so many stories--his father was arrested by the Germans in their lobby during the war.

Here is our room--it was truly amazing!
