During our bike tour in Brittany we spent a night in Normandy, east of Le Mont-Saint-Michel. The tour there was quite flat and so we had time to spend almost 3 hours on Le Mont-Saint-Michel on the way there. We stayed only 6 km away and wanted to go back in the evening. However, not the boring way on the road, but over the solid mud flats. The sky was impressive. While we got going quickly, the Watt stretched out. Long stretches weren’t easy to ride, there were also a few creeks, it got darker, so that we finally longed for the road again and were really happy when we reached it. Luckily there was neither high tide nor fog.
