… the small sea, as Morbihan means in Breton. It is a sea in the sea with a rather narrow opening to the Atlantic with The Pointe de Kerpenhir, close to Locmariaquer, on one side and Port Navalo on the other. We took a cruise boat from Vannes, that ships through the Morbihan with several stops to hop off or on. It was a great day for such a cruise – sunshine and good wind for sailing boats. A little bit cold, but with great rewards by the scenery.
The construction of the boat provides a maritime frame for some pictures.
Some sailors worked really hard to get the most out of the wind.
A dreamy view on Locmaroaquer, known for its large, broken menhir.
Approaching Port Navalo with a so typical Breton picture with its lighthouse, Breton houses and the sea.
And then the cromlech, the ancient stone circle, on the small island er Lannic. Part of the stones are typically under water and can be only seen with low tide. In the background is the cairn, a megalith grave under a small hill, of the Island of Gavrinis.
Finally, we got off the boat at the Île aux Moines for lunch and an afternoon walk on the island. More on this soon.
