Monument to See

Plinky asked, “What famous mon­u­ment do you hope to see one day?”

I’d like to go back to Mont St. Michel some day and spend more time there. I vis­it­ed the place briefly dur­ing a trip while I was in high school, and a small part of one day sim­ply was­n’t near­ly enough time to spend in the clois­ters, much less the rest of the place. There’s so much his­to­ry there!

I would have been hap­py to wan­der up the wind­ing road lined with shops at a leisure­ly pace had we not been on such a strict sched­ule, but as it was I was rac­ing to make it to the top.

Of course, all vis­i­tors are on some­thing of a sched­ule, because the tide cov­ers the road to the island every day, and I’m not cer­tain vis­i­tors are even allowed to stay past a cer­tain time. It might be nec­es­sary to stay near­by and spend sev­er­al days explor­ing, con­cen­trat­ing on a dif­fer­ent bit of the island each time — the clois­ters one day, dif­fer­ent stages of the cathe­dral con­struc­tion on dif­fer­ent days, the shops anoth­er — to tru­ly do the place jus­tice.
