    It's been many, many years since I visited Mont St. Michel. Thanks for all the great pictures which remind me of how unique it is. Ironically there is a similar place named St. Michael's Mount near Cornwall, England that looks so similar!

    I have always wanted to see Mont St Michel but to date have never made it here. it looks very busy but I can see why, as it's a spectacular place! I have never seen gargoyles for sale before - were you tempted ot buy one?!! I love the views from the West Terrace, and the distant view of the Mont itself :-)
