I like your point of view, Ginnie, nicely done.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Love those cobbles! Lovely, Ginnie!
May we take heed of your words...
Ginnie Hart: These particular cobblestones are quite a bit bigger than the ones I'm used to here in the Netherlands, Elizabeth. They really stood out to me. Thank you.

Yes...could get a bloody nose from stumbling here, Ginnie.

Gorgeous cobbles, but not great for cycling on.
Ginnie Hart: I definitely would NOT recommend a bike here, Ray, let alone stumbling!
J'adore les petites rues pavées comme celle-ci.
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Martine. These are bigger stones than what we have here in the Netherlands, however!
How old is that path?
Ginnie Hart: I have no idea, Michael, except that the tidal island was given to a Benedictine order in the 11th century. Possible that old? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Michael%27s_Mount
Mind your ankles...Great capture Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Perfectly said, Richard. Thank you.

These are the stones NOT to walk with high heels, you may end up bare feet... Wonderful point of view. It has not been a smooth path lately.... sad
Ginnie Hart: No high heels, trust me, Astrid! I'd like to think the path will start getting smoother quickly in the days ahead. Let's pray so!

Trod by the feet of countless millions..
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure of it, Chris. So glad mine were two of them! smile

'Cobblestone' is one of my first English words I learnt and stumbled over.
Ginnie Hart: HA! That's a good one, Philine. I love it. smile

That path is a work of art, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Lisl. The stones are much bigger than the ones I've been used to elsewhere.

What a beautiful shot; I love the the paving.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan. It appeared to me as a work of art.

Jolie prise
JP
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, JP.
J'adore ces rues pavées , leur taille est bien grande
Belle photo , merci
Ginnie Hart: Some of the biggest cobblestones I've ever seen, Claudine! smile Thanks.
It certainly is a great place to visit Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: A memory of a lifetime, Chad, for sure!
Good point of view, good photo Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.
cadrage extra! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
Je ne savais pas qu'il y avait aussi un Mont Saint Michel chez nos amis anglais... Beaux pavés
Ginnie Hart: I didn't know either, Marie, until last year, when we knew we would visit it this year. It's your Little Sister. smile It has been fun to see them both! Merci.
Since you are way down there, I hope you did not. Nicely done.
Ginnie Hart: HA! The stones are so big, Mary, it's easy to land safely on them without tripping. Thanks.
i was just thinking, before i read your caption, that that path looks very hard to walk on! but it does look very romantic... lovely shot, my friend
Ginnie Hart: These cobblestones are HUGE, Elaine, and are very hard to miss (compared to ones elsewhere in Europe). Very romantic, indeed. Thanks. smile
i like the low down angle here, Ginnie. not a place to go wearing stilettos!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush, and no worries with me or Astrid on the stilettos side of things. smile
Definitely a flat shoe footpath, but aren't they lovely cobbles.
Ginnie Hart: And big enough not to miss, Brian, which is the added plus. Thanks.
they didn't want to use too many stoned to build this pathway Ginnie... but they have been well rounded off over the centuries....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Peter. I'll never forget them.
Oh I have been there twice I think.
Did you see the castle?
Ginnie Hart: We saw it, LC, but didn't walk up to visit it. Maybe another time?
A wonderful shot. A great look to those stones but I don't think my old knees would appreciate walking on them smile
Ginnie Hart: To tell you the truth, Michael, they were so big they were easy to walk on, compared to the smaller cobblestones I'm used to here in the Netherlands.
Perfect for today!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Robin. And now, today (Wednesday my time), all I want to do is go to bed and sleep it all off. NOTHING happened the way it was expected or projected to do. What is happening in our world these days????

We have to navigate the path that is presented to us. The path may be rocky and difficult.
Ginnie Hart: No question about it, Cherry, as we both know by now! (sigh)
