This locality is, during flood tide, an island with a Gothic Church on it, now used for a prison. During ebb tide, it is connected with the shore by the grave of Mont St. Michel. The peculiarity of the plain, as seen in the picture, is that heavy-laden wagons can pass over it after one tide, while after the next it entirely changes in character--the sand softening, and in portions swallowing up everything thrown upon it.
