Family escapade in the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel
or when you organize a nature outing with your uncles, aunts, cousins and great-cousin to discover a hidden treasure!”The idea came from one of my uncles: to go for a walk on the Hermelles bank. Luckily, La Maison de la Baie in Le Vivier-sur-Mer proposes this hike! At the beginning, I had to promote it within my family, which is my job, and to reassure the future participants about the duration of the hike… Yes, 12 kilometers is tiring! But fortunately this walk is done barefoot so we don’t wear out our shoes! We are far from imagining what awaits us and the encounters we will make but one thing is sure that we will have a good time as a family!”
The D-Day / The encounters in the Bay
Arrives the D-day, Yannick, expert of the bay, welcomes us. And Mr. “indispensable” explains to us that without him we would not be able to do this walk! Because in the Bay of the Mont-Saint-Michel all the paths are not good and getting stuck in the mud is not a good plan! From there, our exploration begins to discover this hidden treasure of the Bay of the Mont-Saint-Michel, the Hermelles bank.backpack, camera, bare feet and let’s go for a hike!The backpack in place, the camera around the neck, here we go for this day, not without apprehension but with a lot of enthusiasm to be in family and enjoy the fresh air that this expedition offers.
Here, photo breaks are required!”
To the delight of my uncles photographers, this walk was punctuated with many photo breaks. Lens launched, focus ok ! Here we go for a shooting of the stars of the Bay. It’s the Fashion Bay, with the Mont Saint-Michel as Top Model! And as a guest of honor, my little cousin who takes great pleasure in this discovery, with her little red boots! She makes us realize that it is necessary to be amazed by everything. Lesson well understood by her father who, himself, marvels at this little darling.
Picnic break with a view!
Even if the photo breaks are welcome, another break is necessary: the picnic break! It was so nice to enjoy your sandwich in the bay with such a beautiful view (I’ll skip the details of a picnic break in my family, but I can tell you that there was more than just ham and butter!)
