Trip to the coast of Brittany 7 - Ladder to heaven on the nose of France

We got on to our final destination : the Pointe du Raz, or the Nose of France. This is the west-most tip of France. If you see it on the map, it looks like a nose sticking into the Atlantic. We planned to hike there from a spot a little further down the coast called Port de Bestrée. But before we could start our hike, we were enraptured by a shimmering light show in the heavens put up for our benefit by that bearded dude who lives up there. As I have mentioned in previous posts, it was cloudy and cold and blustery all though our tip, but just at his moment the noonday sun broke through a small hole in the clouds and created this stairway of light. There was no one else in eyesight, so it seemed to have been done just for our benefit...
Here are some more pics of the light show. It kept changing as the hole in the cloud changed shapes with the wind. Let me know if you would like to have hi-res versions of these photos to use as screen savers. I'll be happy to post them.
