Mont St Michel, Roches de Ham and Chapelle sur Vire…a great day out.
A great day out in Normandy France. Shot with a Canon 5D Mk III and Go Pro. The sheep I am told are renown for their “ready salted taste’ resulting from the fact that they graze so close to the sea.Thanks to Pete Nancy and Tess for their patience.
Polderisation and occasional flooding created salt marsh meadows that were found to be ideally suited to grazing sheep. The well-flavoured meat that results from the diet of the sheep in the pré salé (salt meadow) makes agneau de pré-salé (salt meadow lamb), a local specialty that may be found on the menus of restaurants that depend on income from the many visitors to the mount.
Normandy is famous for it;s cider production. The Cider served at Roches de Ham is sweet and very refreshing on a warm day spent overlooking the Vire valley.
