Quiberon doesn’t float my boat.

Quiberon is a coastal town that sits at the end of a long peninsula on the south coast of Brittany.

The reason I am not overly keen on it is the fact that it is a very touristy town.  There are about 22 hotels in Quiberon plus other types of accommodation.

I prefer the unspoiled places that are not so densely populated.  Having said that, I still enjoyed our day at Quiberon and if you are someone who loves the beach this would certainly be a place for you.

Boats leave from Quiberon to go to Belle-Ile, which is a very popular destination.

We stopped to watch a boat loading and departing with its load of passengers.

One thing that caught my eye while we were there. . . . .

      One can find a link to Scotland no matter where you go!

  2. I’m intrigued to know what was inside the Scottish shop, did you venture in? I never tire of watching things go on and off ferries.

      No we didn’t go inside the shop but there were some Scottish woollen jumpers in the window.
      The ferry reminded me of when we used to catch the ferry from Fife to Edinburgh, before the road bridge was built, it was a highlight for us as youngsters. My dad was on the local council and when the road bridge was opened he was invited to the opening. It was a memorable occasion. We have first day issue stamps on commemorative envelopes. My dad bought many envelopes and my sister addressed them in her beautiful italic handwriting before they were posted.
