Photographer's Note

One more shot of Buguélès peninsula in Penvénan, Côtes d'Armor, Brittany. The building with the red roof is the Moulin mer du Vorlan (i.e. Vorlan sea mill), Ar Velin Vor in breton. But it is most known as Buguélès tide mill. It sits on a dyke between Balanec and Ozac'h islands. It has two apertures : one lets the water enter in the pond behind the dyke on tide, the other one let the water exit the pond on edd tide, which activates the mill wheel. A first mill was built there in late 15th but it was destroyed and replaced in 1837 with the current mill built by a shipowner and merchant from Tréguier. It is a private property today.
