I think moules are available in Europe pretty much year-round. I don't know if they even have a "season"." And here's a question I always mean to ask in France, and then forget....do you eat oysters in France only during months with the letter "r" in them - as you do in the USA? Anyone know?

Le Mont St. Michel is wonderful at night. Truly magic. We stayed at La Mere Poulard and had the nicest room overlooking the bay. We did eat at La Mere Poulard and it was very good. I can still hear the beat of the wisk against the copper bowls used to make the omelets.
Just before you go on the causeway to the Mont is a grocery store on the right hand side. We bought a wine, Grand Maniere, Cointreau, cheese, fruit. Check it out, the prices were very reasonable. About $5.00 for a good size bottle of Grand Maniere. Wine for about $3.00 per bottle. It is also a good place to buy your Cavaldos.
Enjoy La Merveille.

Re: STCirq comment about La Mere Poulard being solely for Tourists.
Of course it is. so is the Eiffle Tower. That does not mean you would go to Paris and not want to see it. What do you think all those portraits on the walls of famous people who have eaten at La Mere are all about? We go to La Mere because it is touristy. Because it has so much history, because everyone has eaten there, because of those omelets.

Whatever. Pay as much as you like for those omelets.

For the record, I have eaten (and stayed) at Mere Poulard and enjoyed both my meals (I have eaten there twice) and staying overnight.

Of course, the entire Mont is a tourist attraction, but that is why people go to Europe--to see the attractions.

I guess StCirq is just too sophisticated to be able to enjoy a run of the mill tourist attraction like Mont St. Michel. It is hard to be impressed when you have been everywhere and done everything, no?
