Le Petit Minou

More from Brittany. On Sunday I made a sojourn to the Phare du Petit Minou, a lighthouse on the bay of Brest.

It was another gorgeously sunny day that sent the dappled light crazing over the surface of the sea, but with that bracing, biting wind that I had been looking forward to.

Did you know that the sea in Bretagne is sometimes that same teal color as the Mediterranean off the coast of Corsica? I was expecting a steely blue-grey. This region continues to surprise me.

  1. I know what you mean about the colour of the water in Brittany, at first it shocked me too, you just need to be there on the right day: http://www.rachelphipps.com/2012/06/outfit-post-one-of-most-beautiful-views.html

    • What a gorgeous post! I loved those flowers that somehow grow right on the rocks too.

      • I can’t wait to go back there this Summer (I’ve had a home there for a few years but I’d never been that far along the coast before) but I’m worried that it might not be as nice a day and it will ruin it for me; I have the image of the rocks from that post as my laptop wallpaper and as the lock screen background on my iPad, so I’m used to seeing it ever day!
