Supertide returns to Normandy

Published on October 13, 2015 by Chris Robinson

Originally shared by +Gavray gite rentals, Normandy France

Today is another supertide (une grande marée) along the Normandy coast with a coefficient of 117 expected. The photo shows the scene at Bricqueville sur Mer earlier this year. There's a road underneath that sign which completely disappears when the tide comes in. Mont St Michel will also become an island as the tide cuts it off from the mainland. Definitely a spectacle worth seeing.

Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
