The port of Vannes and al. !!!

And of course, cannot be too far from my beautiful capital city of Vannes only 27 km from my house!  We were there again today, a ride with my Dad and our dog Rex, wonderful views of the Gulf of Morbihan and the port of Vannes! Let me tell you briefly of this latest road warrior escapade and new pictures! See the draught going on with lack of water all over. Hope you enjoy it as I.

 We went by car up the right bank of the canal marina along the famous Promenade de la Rabine with its long avenue of trees that borders the water to the Pont de Kerino bridge. We went up the Butte de Kerino hill with great views and a wonderful Calvary of Christ overlooking the Port of Vannes and the Gulf of Morbihan.

While in the hill of Kerino we did a lot of walking even pulling the Dad’s wheelchair on lawn! Of course, my boys help and it was a nice family outing indeed.

We came down to Le Port area , the most lively in Vannes. It covers an area of 1.5 km². It has many corners of greenery such as the Butte de Kérino. The place Gambetta, of hemispherical plan, marks the end of the port of Vannes and puts it in contact with the historic center by the Porte Saint-Vincent.

The port of Vannes is a commercial port, a passenger port and a Marina located north of the Gulf of Morbihan along a 1 200 meters channel that leads the boats from the commercial port of Pont-Vert to the afloat basin marina. The port of Vannes is a floating basin, maintained at a minimum depth of 2.10 meters by a lock gate, whose opening times follow the tide times. In addition, access to the port is also constrained by crossing the pont de Kérino bridge built on the channel, downstream from the lock gate. The Marina has a capacity to host 280 boats on pontoons. It can accommodate 34 boats on dead body. The port of Vannes has a visitor area for your stopovers with 60 places available.

There you go folks, a dandy in my Vannes. The Le Port area all along the Promenade de la Rabine into the Butte de Kerino overlooking the passenger and commercial terminal into the Gulf of Morbihan is a sublime walk. A must really to do while in town; hope you enjoy the post as I.

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all !!!
