Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_03 : Barre D'Etel

We left the north shore and crossed the bridge. This is the view of the river entrance from the town of Etel. It shows how narrow the entrance really is. To the left of this image lies the tidal pond (visible on the aerial photo), which was built as a safe area for families to enjoy the beach. The pond opening can be closed during storms to prevent it from washing out.

When you said the pond could be closed, it reminded me of that one town in Japan that built a tsunami wall that worked during the last big one they had there, in 2011. Fudai, Iwate.
