Belle (but wet) Ile

BWs annual coastal walking holiday was on Belle Ile this week. We took the ferry from Quiberon and stayed in walkers' accommodation at Sauzon. Despite the bad weather (hairy moments on the high cliffs of the wild coast), and some walking time inevitably lost to rain, we managed to visit the famous Vauban citadel at Le Palais, Sarah Bernhardt's fort and the lighthouse at Les Poulains as well as doing some long and short walks on the north and south coasts. Most memorable for various reasons was the route starting from Port Coten and the often painted/photographed 'Needle' rocks.
