Photographer's Note

One more picture taken yesterday afternoon on the coastal road from Guidel to Lorient. After the storm the sea was still strong and white with foam. A few hours earlier at high tide, the coastal road was covered by foam. This is a picture of the Loch beach, which has a good reputation for surfboarding. It is on the other side of the road from the Petit Loch pond (previous picture), by the Loch fort, a fortification built by the duke of Aiguillon in 18th century to prevent english landing not far from the rich port of Lorient. In the foreground you can see another fortification, a more recent one, built by Nazis in World War 2 to protect the submarine base of Lorient. There are many remains of this Atlantic Wall on the coast from Guidel to Lorient.
