Les grandes marées – Spring tides

Last weekend witnessed ‘Les grandes marées’ – ‘Spring tides’ –  along the Channel coast. There were exceptionally high and low tides (a ‘coefficient de marée’ of 119 – really exceptionally exceptional!!) which  brought hundreds of visitors to Port en Bessin to see the high tide in the morning and to fish for prawns at low tide in the late afternoon.
Both the low tide and high tides can be seen in these photos…
