Small can be beautiful

Is this place familiar to you?

Mont St Michel model on display at Arbroath Abbey,  July 2018

It’s a tiny model of one of my favourite spots in France – Mont St Michel.

It consists of 100 of the tiniest Lego bricks and took 4 hours to build. The creator was Warren Elsmore, a professional Lego model builder, and author of a best-selling book, “Brick City”.

Whilst I do appreciate small things (well, I am small, so small is fantastic) I have to say I prefer the gravity-defying monastery at Mont St Michel in it’s truly dramatic and towering splendour.
