Location[edit]

Douarnenez, just a few meters of the GR34, the long distance walking path along the entire French west coast.

Participants[edit]

JwB (talk) and 3 dragalongs

Plans[edit]

On our way to the Douarnenez market, to get some last things prior to the trip home. Amongst which the best take-away crepes of Brittany in the creperie des halles. As the hash is near the main road into town, stop nearby, and walk 200 m to the hash.

Expedition[edit]

The way to the path also gave acces to the ruins of a 1st-4th century AD roman "Garum" factory. This is a fermented salty fish sauce, which was in use throughout the Roman empire. In the 12th century new factories were placed on top, which are ruins now also.

From that point to the hash it was only 90 meters along the long distance walking path. Underneath the trees GPS accuracy dropped, and I only once saw a green flash in the droid-app, but was too late to capture the screenshot. The kids wanted to continue our journey to the creperie in the market halles, so we went on.
