The ghost island was the first exploration before the Diane Goes For You’s project began. It took place a year ago, on the 12th of January 2013. After moving in Belgium, I was having a virtual walk around my house to know more the area. I found this island which only appears in satellite mode, despite the fact that it looks very real.

Details of the island

I went there and I didn’t see a thing. The sailors told me that it was a sandbank that had been swallowed up years ago. So, at that time, “the island didn’t exist.”

However, since a year ago, the image on Google Maps has changed. Today the island exists in satellite vision and in the simplified vision. So the doubt has returned, was it the tide?
