Sunnyside ... on the Isle of Black

Today we leave Europe.  Our destination it the Isle of Noirmoutier -- a name whose origins can be traced to something like "Black Minster" or "Black Monastery".  There's nothing black about this island today.  A joke quickly arises among our students that we've finally found the real "Sunnyside".  (That's an inside joke if you're not from Morgantown -- there, Sunnyside is not exactly the sunniest part of town, for the moment at least).
