Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Following on from my previous post, this shows a close-up of the ancient port of Gwin Zegal.

Please click here to see the larger Beta version.

Here the boats are moored in the old Breton way; tree trunks are driven into the sand and the boats are moored to the tree trunks.

We were lucky that we arrived at low tide. At high tide, this might have looked like many other moorings, for the tree trunks would not have been so visible.

It was a strange experience walking around these grounded boats, almost like being in prehistoric forest. Apart from ourselves, there were only two other people on the beach.

From our experience, most people seemed to park on the clifftop car park and just look down on the moored boats because the path to the beach was quite steep. What a experience they were missing! I will add a view of part of the stepped descent as a workshop.

I wish you a lovely Sunday and thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
