But firstly, I had to get some more profane things done and drove to the closest supermarket to fill up my food supplies. From there I drove the short distance back west to Penmarc´h and stopped at the Phare d´ Eckmühl. This is a fairly famous lighthouse accompanied by to more smaller lighthouses and the combination of the three plus the typical mix of rock and sandy coast plus a few fancy boats made for a very nice ensemble. The only downside was the penetrant smell from rotting seaweed as the tide currently was low.
I had a little stroll and then returned to the parking on the road leading to La Torche. I was lucky to find a free spot at this small parking. It was the only one without height restricting bars and therefore usually quickly complete whereas the vast other parking areas for the “normal” cars still had plenty of space. That height restriction politics particularly at beach parkings is one the few things I really don´t like about France. In fact, it has become a plague nowadays.
