Passage du Gois

Le Passage de Gois is a periodically flooded passage leading to the island of Noirmoutier in France. It’s situated between Ile de Noirmoutier and Beauvoir-sur-Mer, and flooded twice a day by the high tide. Despite the flooding, there is a foot race, the Foulees du Gois, held every year across it, starting at the onset of the high tide. Even more surprsing, the Passage du Gois was used by Tour de France bicycle race during Stage 2 in 1999. Click here to view the first image in this week’s art of trolling gallery.
