We went on a randonée, a walk for seven kilometers, through the low tide in the bay of Mont Saint-Michel. We started in the early afternoon from Avranches and arrived about three hors later at the holy mountain. The weather was perfect -blue sky, white clouds, windy. I hope you get inspired by the pictures to do the walk – but be cautioned: go on a guided tour as it is dangerous if you do not know where to go.
The walk has much to offer. First of all the view on Mont Saint-Michel and while you walk you get closer and closer with more and more impressive views. The reflection of the sky in the water creates majestic pictures. Beyond the view you will walk through mud, on sand, trough water – either rather shallow or through knee deep or higher with some current. The most unusual experience is the quicksand – after stepping on the sand with lost of energy in a group, the sand develops a life of its own. It feels like an elastic plate thatswings while walking. Young and old kids love it.
