    Questa foto fue tomada accanto a “Long Water”, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Londra, in giuglio 2015.
    Non vale tua foto perchè gli uccelli sono troppo lontani. Pero, mi aveva sorpresa come ci sentivamo in mezzo alla campagna, mentre ci eramo al centro di una delle più grandi città del mondo.
    Cari saluti.

    This was still taken from the Spanish Point, but looking North rather than East.
    On the right of the picture, the place is called "Moulin Blanc", and you can just about guess the white buildings of "Oceanopolis", the very interesting "Ocean museum", just right of the right crane.
    To the left is the start of Brest commercial port.

    This photo taken from the air is not mine I am afraid, as I don't own a helicopter ! It's the property of the TV channel France 3 Regions.
    It was taken on the 19th July, at the end of the ship festival, as the Armada was making its way to Douarnenez, south of Brest, where another ship festival was going to take place.
    Douarnenez, the famous sardine fishing port, was the first to launch this idea of a ship festival in Finistere, in 1988. Then an agreement was found with Brest, where the main festival has taken place since, every 4 years. Each time, the Armada then makes its way to Douarnenez for the great pleasure of most viewers !
    The favorite spot to watch this incredible journey is Pointe de Pen-Hir where the ships go through the "Tas de Pois", those 3 rocks , once part of the cliff, that jut out into the sea.

    I have just cropped the grid off.
    Unfortunately, I didn't know how to keep the same black frame, which is much more elegant than the one I added.

    Built in 1980 in Haak-Zaadam, as a trawler, she suffered a wreckage in 1984 off the west-Frisian coast.

    It was a long wait for this symbolic ship ! It was supposed to arrive in Brest on 12th July, ready to start the Big Maritime Celebration on the 13th.
    We waited and we waited... and all we could see was this far away silhouette on the horizon.
    We learned later that plans had been changed because Segolene Royal, then the Minister of Ecology was coming to Brest on the 13th to launch the celebrations.
    Therefore “L'Hermione” would arrive that day in great pomp, welcome the Minister who would then board the ship for the official launching.
    That's why the ship had been waiting for the go-ahead, well offshore, on the Ocean.
    As for us, we had a second day on the Spanish Point to watch the actual arrival :-)

    This corrresponds to verse 3 on the main note.

    The figurehead is a 3m high lion holding the Royal Shield with 3 lilies on a blue background.
    Unlike the warrior figures of the time, his mouth is shut, because the ship was built during Peace time.
    This figurehead represented courage, strength, power and glory of the French King over the seas.
