Le Gois – Spring tides

We went down to the Gois to have a picnic lunch and have never seen so many people there, many just looking and many more fishing/scratching/digging for cockles. When the tide came in may folks got their feet wet due to staying out too far, too long and one motor-caravan had a problem (motor stalled?), stuck on the roadway and was quickly flooded out, the ‘pompiers’ came out with their zodiac boat to rescue them.The photos below show how fast the water comes up as it covers the roadway, there is just 4 minutes between these pictures.
