Brittany

This gallery countains photos taken during some of our visits in Brittany. We have been several times, visiting Finistère, Morbihan and paying a short visit to Nantes.

The photos displayed in this gallery were taken during three separate trips. The first one was in May 2001 in the Gulf of Morbihan. We had rent a house in the small village of le Guern and visited places all around the Morbihan Gulf and beyond, to the Quiberon peninsula and the Carnac area.

More recent photos, dating from May 2006 are being added. Once again, we rent a small house, this time near Chateaulin and visited Finistère, where we had already been years ago. All of these newer photos were taken in digital whereas the older ones are scanned slides.

The Nantes photos were taken on a two day visit in September 2006.

We are still planning to return to Brittany as we are far from having seen all what we wanted!
