on the way to le mont-saint-michel

on the way to le mont-saint-michel we passed by beautiful sceneries, even though it was impossibel to stop the car and take a photograph for most of the times. but everytime we could, we would.

i though the inumerous amount of pastel cows in the middle of vibrant green filds of grass were so adorable.

we passed by chatêau de carrouges (photos 2 to 5) and it was gloomy but beautiful. i though it was sweet to have a groups of cows in one of the bedroom window views :)

and then on the manoir de la saucerie, the strange mismatched sctructure that had fascinated me while searching online. 

tó was really excited to draw it, but it proved to be more difficult than anticipated ... i think however that the photos show a bit of its character :)


  1. The structures look hauntingly beautiful and the window view is lovely.

  2. i love the gloomy mood of these pics!

  3. Your pictures are nice, I am glad you liked my beautiful country, and especially Normandy, since I'm from there :D
    Very nice atmosphere of your pictures, really like it :)

  4. Joana, that Manoir de la Saucerie is just incredible! I remember seeing a picture of it on your Flickr a few days ago and loving it. I'd love to visit it too!
    Great photographs, with the gloomy sky and the manor - and I love the one of the iron gates!

  5. This is such a wonderful and historically rich country. There is much to discover, glad to be able to see through your pictures.

    The cows I like very much. :)

  6. i love them so much! pretty atmospheric. x

  9. oh, it's been far too long since i last visited here. shame, shame on me!
