Bayeux and the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel : a tour in Normandy

The weather went bad that very day : that means sad and bland pics (note that the landscape is not fascinating in the first place). Still, I'm posting it for touristic purposes : you'll get to see what inland Cotentin and Avranchin look like.

We reach the modern département of Manche with Saint-Lô destroyed by allied bombings during WWII :

Granville : la Haute-Ville (I imagine that this type of town would be very familiar to Québeckers)

Soon, we'll be leaving Normandy and we'll enter in Brittany :

What was bland is now sordid : that's Brittany ! The Mont-Dol, the ridiculous Breton answer to Mont-Saint-Michel :

The Bay of Cancale : the Bretons are condemned to live with the fact that the Mount is Normand.

Then the weather went ... Breton. No more pics ...
