We headed off to Le Mont St. Michel.  We arrived at about 8pm.  There’s a big car park area for campervans.  It’s 12 euro for the day but  it’s free to stay overnight.  The Mont looks quite spectacular at night.  It’s only about a 5 minute walk from the campervan park.

Le Mont St. Michel is France’s second most popular attraction but at night time it is really pleasant.

France 2011: Day 1 (Dublin)

We were booked on the 21:30 Celtic Link Ferry from Rosslare to Cherbourg.

We headed down the N11 and boarded at 8.45pm.  The cabin was grand – clean and with enough room.  There’s not a huge amount on board the ferry compared to some of the other lines.
