Photographer's Note

ITRON VARIA ROKAMADOUR, KAMELED, BRO GERNE

CHAPEL AND OLD BOATS NEAR THE HARBOUR, CAMARET, BRITTANY

The "sillon" of Camaret is a natural spit of stone that protect the harbour. Camaret was once a very important spiny lobster port, as testify those ship wrecks. At the end of the sillon, one can see the chapel Our Lady of Rocamadour (1527) ant Vauban's tower (1689-1695).
There was a lot of ship wrecks in many estuaries of Brittany (that we call Aber, like our welsh cousins). But they tend to disapear as no more boats are left there. French authorities rather use excavators to destroy fishing boats.
