It’s time again for one of my favorite times of year… the three weeks of the Tour de France. This year it began in one of the most extraordinary places in all of France, Le Mont St-Michel. It just so happens that I visited Le Mont St-Michel last week and was able to see this incredible place for the second time. Even having seen it before, I walked up to the Mont with my mouth slightly ajar, completely in awe of it. If you’ve been, you know what I mean. It’s such an enchanting place with as rich a history as one could imagine for a tiny island.

Le Grand Départ ended at the WWII beaches of Normandy (3rd image), where I visited with my family in 2008. The beaches are absolutely splendid and yet there is an eerie silence that is difficult to ignore. What a grand start, indeed, to this year’s Tour de France with these two beautiful spots!
