My brother brought home pictures of his visit to Mont Saint-Michel, near Normandy, France.

First constructed in the 8th Century, it is still a working monastery, once only accessible during low tide.  Over years of coastal erosion and other natural influences, local authorities were prompted to make changes to once again make Mont St. Michel an island.  The targeted date for completion was 2012.

Have you visited Mont St. Michel?  Is it again only accessible at low tide? Would it make you nervous to get 'stuck' there when the tide rolled in?

Normandy, because of it's military history, has been on my 'bucket list'; maybe I'll make it a two-fer when I go there.
