We began the day by leisurely sailing toward Brest for afternoon activities. We had time to enjoy everything that beautiful National Geographic Resolution has to offer. There were a couple of photography presentations in the morning to assist everyone in making images that they can share with friends and family.
After our gourmet lunch, some guests chose to visit a castle, the Fort of France. There were a lot of towers to climb, and it offered a beautiful view of the river and the sea.
An exhilarating Zodiac tour in the Iroise National Marine Park offered guests an opportunity to see aquatic wildlife. Two species of seals, dolphins, and lots of pelagic birds complemented the rugged landscape.
A blood-pumping hike through undulating hills, a casual, history-oriented walk, and a photography-based exploration were offered on the coastline near the Saint Mathieu Lighthouse. Everyone enjoyed the gorgeous sunshine, calm winds, and blue skies at this extremely scenic location. Exploring the ruins of Notre Dame de Grace and the abbey were both fun and photographically-rewarding.
The grand finale was a rousing performance by Gwennyn and her band, a group of visiting musicians from Brittany. They utilized instruments we might consider relatively unique, including uilleann pipes, a bombard, a low whistle, and a guitar.
