I’m back from a trip to Brittany where I met some blogger friends (who unfortunately have given up blogging). As expected in this region, I met various weather conditions, but basically the (rather chilly) spring was present. I spent my nights at Arzon and at Arradon and visited a lot of other places in the region.
I will split up my “report” and will start with shores around Arzon and Arradon, meaning partly a coastline, but also the shores of the Golfe-du-Morbihan – (Gulf of Morbihan), Morbihan meaning the little sea in the local language. I will be back with a separate post about a boat trip on the Gulf.
The tide on the coast line here is generally some 5-6 meters (16-20 ft), a bit less, 3-4 m (10-13 ft), in the Gulf. The currents are very strong, for example in the narrow opening of the Gulf, where it reaches some 9-10 knots and it’s more or less impossible for a sailing boat to enter or exit against the current.
Here are first some photos from the coastline close to Arzon / Port Navalo (and the port, Le Crouesty)....
There are nice walking paths along the Gulf, where you can watch a green landscape on one side, oyster farms, birds, boats… on the opposite side. These photos were taken between Arradon and Larmor-Baden.
