… 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.

I worked and lived in Baku in Azerbaijan since September 2012 and started the blog "Life in Baku". End of August 2015 I moved to Rennes in France and started the Blog “Life in Rennes”. I did not know where it will lead to. At the beginning I had the ambition of a 365 days projects - it lasted for about 100 days with the focus on Rennes. With winter coming the opportunities to take pictures decreased dramatically. After a break I resumed the blog and the focus shifted more to Brittany. I love excursions in the region and the blog is now very much about the region of Brittany (including Rennes), its beauty and diversity regarding landscape, culture and food. I hope you enjoy it.
