From our recent holiday in Brittany, near Carnac.
Oyster boats with oyster beds in the background.
Low tide at a small fishing port.
Salt pans still in use at Carnac. The winds evaporate the sea water leaving crystals on the surface which can then be gathered.
Causeway to the small island at Men Du beach. Men means stone and Du means black in the Breton language. It is a Celtic language so not surprising that du is similar to the Irish dubh.
Wild field poppies, Flanders field poppies, growing in sandy soil by the beach.
Lunch stop at a rocky cove.
Penthièvre fort, built in 1747, where 59 members of the Resistance were tortured and shot, July 1944. It is now owned by the Ministry of Defence.
