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.

The myth has it that prehistoric man drove wild horses and reindeer from the summit. But the archeological proof shows they didn´t.
