Weekend Update

Mont St. Michel
More than 1,000 years old, it sits surrounded by the bay (not the car park as it appears).
The engineer in me is amazed that they had figured out how to place stones in such remarkable form so many centuries agom much less getting them hundreds of feet up to the top of the rock!

A restored Moulin Vert on the way to the Mont.
Moulins can also be water mills, so you have to be specific about the destination.
This beauty was restored to working condition in 2003, and actually turns in the wind and makes flour.

We've been traveling to places other than the internet cafe, so our blogging has been poor. For this, we are sorry. I hope our connection issues will become less and we'll post more frequently, for now, though it's only every few days that we can put stuff up.

These are fascinating sights, and you can expect to see paintings posted soon of these and more.

I love this photograph! I haven't had the chance to read all of the blog yet, but I sure hope you painted this picture!
You also, not surprisingly, have a great eye for photography!

Thanks for sharing!
