Super-tide at Mont-Saint-Michel: High water and 30K viewers

Last Saturday's "super-tide" at Mont-Saint-Michel, the island monument just off the coast at the border of Normandy and Brittany, drew over 30,000 spectators from all over the world, anxious to see the storied island as it seldom is...completely surrounded by water.


The so-called "tide of the century" didn't disappoint; the rapidly-moving waters ("like a galloping horse") reached 119 on a scale that goes to 120. Despite the century moniker, a similar tide occurred in 1997, and another is due in 2033. Have you got your tickets?
