Mont Saint Michel at Sunset

Downton Abbey

This is a pretty good show. I recommend it! I feel like I’m watching Masterpiece Theater, and that makes it sound rather boring, but it is not. Every one of the actors on here is very good… anyway, give it a chance if you want to watch The Most British Show Ever Made!

Daily Photo – Mont Saint Michel at Sunset

Oh my god getting to this location at the last second was difficult and lucky.

I started the wild car ride about 30 minutes beforehand inside that walled city. I looked on Google Maps to figure out how to get to this exact spot. Now, I had no mobile internet, so I basically had to memorize the way here. It required going through, and I kid you not, about seven different roundabouts, each one exiting in a strange, non obviously spot. Anyway, to my and Tom’s surprise, I exited each one perfectly and made it here with ZERO mistakes. Note that I am not nearly always this flawless, but it worked out and we got here just in time for sunset!

    Nice when things work out just right,they are never ever forgotten.

  • You sound like my wife, Trey. She’s been trying to get me to watch Downton for years, and so far I’ve successfully resisted. I’m a Game of Thrones addict 🙂
