Our next stop is yet another Trover inspired geologically interesting destination. As Ali has noted, with me in charge of the itinerary, rocks are featuring prominently.
We are on the part of the North Brittany coast named after its pink granite coastline, the interest would probably stop there except that in places it has been eroded mainly by water into some really cool shapes, as Ali puts it, it's like being on the set of the Flinstones by the sea.
Not only did the photos look amazing on Trover they also suggested that F's current climbing obsession could be fed. It was definitely on the list of places to visit!
As we approached our luxurious campsite (showers definitely required after a series of more rustic stops) from the crest of the hill, I could see the rocks in the distance, I let out a cheer and punched the air. Ali looked across in bemusement just then, probably thinking; he's nuts! who gets this excited by a pile of rocks? In defence of my sanity, what's never sure on Trover is how accessible certain sites will be, particularly when driving a bus and limited by D's mobility. I knew these rock formations were along a well known path (le chemin des douaniers) but I was nervous that it would require a serious hike and/or lots more D carrying, from the crest it was clear there would be no access issues! Whoop whoop!!
