End of the world

On a ball there is no such thing like an end or a beginning. Before the discovery of America the region we traveled to today was called „End of the world“ or „Finistère“ in French. The Atlantic Ocean shows its wild side here.

On our way from Camaret-sur-Mer to Pointe du Raz we came through many old villages of Brittany. St. Nic is such a place, where you can find a pretty church building.

Coming form Douarnenez you first reach Point du Van in westerly direction. The church is consecrated to shipwreckers.

Within sight of the western wall you can perceive a small lighthouse.

After a short drive, first in a southerly direction and then in a westerly direction, you reach Pointe du Raz. At low tide the is a strong current in southern direction. The water is visibly swirled between the rocks. At this point, where the world ended 528 years ago, you can easily imagine a wild Ocean.

Our journey to Brittany now has come to its end.

I like to make things visible the naked eye isn't able to see. That's part of my profession as a radiologist, too.
