On one of our day expeditions from Chateau du Lannuguy in Morlaix we headed to the Pink Granite Coast. The name matched the tin – there was indeed pink granite all along the coast line.
Ploumanac'h was a busy resort town – not quite our cup of tea. Originally we had planned to stay in a fancy hotel here so we were glad we went with Chateau Lannuguy instead.
The Sentier des Douaniers starts in Ploumanac'h and goes to Perros Guirec - a distance of 5k (approx. 3 miles). This walkway dates back to the day of smugglers when the customs men patrolled the coast line to try to apprehend them.
We had lunch at Perros Guirec – another resort town – but much smaller. The beach was attractive but reasonably crowded.
A chap at the next table had a shirt on that seemed to be about a New Zealand yacht race – we were speculating that he was associated with the America's Cup - which we thought was an amazing coincidence - until we saw other shirts like it for sale in the souvenir shop there.
