A few days ago, when tides were high on the Norman coast, something wonderful happened. The most celebrated small island
in the world became a real island for the first time in more than a century. Or almost an island.
The same thing will happen when tides
are abnormally high in the coming month. By next summer, Mont Saint-Michel, a spectacular rock, 1,300-year-old abbey and medieval
village two kilometres off the French coast, will be a true island once again at all high tides.
In 1874, the abbey at the Mont Saint Michel was declared a historic monument by the French, and in 1979, it was added to Unesco’s
list of World Heritage Sites – one of the first to be granted the coveted status.
