    Damn global warming! Low tide looked tight here 20 yrs ago.


    Interesting fact: Tide comes in around 20mph, if not faster


    If i lived there, There would constantly be symphonic power and death metal playing over the loud speakers. Meanwhile a frosted moon would be constantly overlooking my nighttime sky inferno awash with galactic gems! Big giant white knights with red and black armor would be maintaining sentry around my cold oaken throne. Pictures of jesus suffering and demons locked in battle with arch angels would decorate my halls lit with blue fire torches. I would look from atop my tower in my black chrome armor and spread my giant silver mechanical angel wings and put the land in a terrifying… Read more »


    your island looks like a titty


    This is quite possibly one of the best places to be in case of a zombie invasion.


    @Crystalkestrel: Now that is someone with the right mindset for survival.


    And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
    And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

    ..just sayin..


    Well they began construction on that over a thousand years ago so if god is planning to destroy it he’s taking his sweet time, ipwn.


    @Crystalkestrel: So true (assuming food can be grown there). In every area I’ve lived in, I’ve sorted out the best places to be when the zombies attack.


    Sorry. Copied the wrong verse.

    Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
    And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock


    It’s not true that the Mont St. Michel is no longer accessible by car. While in the past it was often surrounded by water, this has become less frequent in recent years, and is more often flanked by pasture (not to mention a large parking lot full of huge tourist coaches). Doesn’t mean that anyone should attempt a stroll there though! People still die in the quicksand-like silt.

    It’s a mondo tourist trap, but still anjoyable.
    Cheap by air from London too.
