A few days later the storm, heralded by those cirrus clouds, hit the west coast of France. Fortunately by this time we had already left the island.
Phare de Nividic, Pointe de Pern, Ile D´Ouessant (Ushant), Brittany, France.
I´ve just returned from a wonderful trip to Brittany, France. During which I spent a week on the island of Ouessant or, as it is mentioned on the BBC shipping forecast, Ushant. The Bay of Biscay is well known for it´s treacherous weather and this island certainly has a very tricky coast for shipping! It can be reached by a roughly 2 hour ferry trip from Brest.
