Three Days Atlantic Ocean

Crossing the Biscay from France (Brittany) to Spain (Galicia): a challenge for sailors. Three nights and two days on the open ocean, hoping not to run into a southwest storm, that builds steep waves. We had good wind at first, rain in the end and never enough sleep.orinoco-0035

Îles de Glénan

The Îles de Glénan are an archipelago of islands about 10 miles off the south coast of Britanny (Bretagne), only accessible in summer. They are famous with yachting people and are as close to caribbean feeling as a place in Britanny can get. They are well known for their sailing and diving schools.

Eurasian oystercatcher at low tide at the shores of Îles de Glénan. They open molluscs or dig up worms. Despite its name, oysters do not form a large part of their diet. orinoco--5034
