    If you are a basket champion and are 2 meters tall, pay attention to the doors in Britany.
    The ancient Bretons are little and the doors have the adequate size.
    My wife's ancestor was refused as a soldier during the French Revolution because he was 1,34 meter tall.
    May be to resist to the wind ....?

    If you want to have a bath in St Guenole. Forget it. Except if you want to suicide.
    The sea is dangerous even by a quiet day.
    The waves are strong and there are submarine currents which make the swimmers sunk.
    Look at the advertisements if you do not beleive me.

    Look at the boat sculptures at the bottom of the construction.

    Favorite thing: On 10 May 1870, he weather was fine and the sea was quiet.
    The sous-prefet went with his family for a pick nick on a rock in front of the ocean.
    After lunch, he left his wife and children to discuss with some St Guenole inhabitants. When he was back, a wave had brought away the family who was sitting on the rock just at the place marked by the cross.
