|EARLY MORNING ON THE BEACH|
However if you are prepared to get up early and go for a walk along the beach you might be lucky enough to see the quiet side of the beach.

|VIEW OF MONT-ST-MICHEL|
However the Mont can also be quite impressive when viewed closer as can be seen in this image of the massive structure which almost seems to be growing out of the very rock itself.
Mont St Michel and it's bay is included on the UNESCO list of world heritage sites. At the very top of the spire is a statue of the Archangel Michael.
