Almost an island

This photo was, I believe, taken at the Pointe de Dinan on the Presqu'île de Crozon in Finistère (Land's End), the westernmost part of Bretagne (Brittany).

A stone arch at the Pointe de Dinan, Brittany. Digitized color slide, January 1992.

The word presqu'île translates to "peninsula" in English; the literal translation is "almost island." After walking around a little and taking in the views from the cold, windswept cliffs, we went into the town of Crozon to look for a hotel and a place to eat. The restaurant we found was a modern pizzeria and it was buzzing with people. The pizza was delicious, if my memory is correct.


  1. Oh, my goodness, I never knew that presqu'île meant peninsula!

  2. What a beautiful spot! There's always something or some place that I wished I had seen. This in one of them for sure.

  3. I didn’t know the coast of Britany was so beautiful!

  4. mitch, gasp!

    judy, we never stop learning!

    evelyn, my photos don't do it justice. It reminded me of certain parts of the California coast.

    chm, I think it's very beautiful!


Tell me what you think!
