A discovery of the islands in the Iroise sea, at the western tip of Brittany.
I travelled to the island by boat, leaving from Brest, on a misty morning. The first day on the island ended in a lovely sunset.
The landscapes around the island are superb, ships gather seaweed there. Storms leave wrecks and flotsam on the beaches.
Sea thrift bloom close to smooth stones. The sun sets above Molène island and the ocean.
The coasts of the island alternate between heads, rocky coves, pebble beaches and a few patches of sand, with nice outlooks on Ouessant (Ushant) island to the northwest.
On the foreshore of the island, fish and a periwinkle hide in tidepools. Above the tideline, a flock of swallows hunts insects without flying away from me.
Iroise sea lighthouses
Several lighthouses guide sailors around the northern part of the Iroise sea. Arriving in Le Conquet at sunset, we started on the next morning towards Saint-Mathieu head.
We then headed west towards the Pierres Noires lighthouse, then north along Molène island, on a quiet sea that reflected the sky.
We were able to approach La Jument lighthouse very close, with a blue or grey sky background. Then we went to see Nividic lighthouse and its destroyed zip-line.
On the next day, we saw Créac’h lighthouse from afar, then spent time on Ouessant (Ushant) island. On the last day we went by Kéréon lighthouse and Le Four lighthouse and got back to Le Conquet.
