A stopover in Roscoff

Just for a change, we decided to travel from Roscoff to Plymouth for our trip to UK and spent a night in Roscoff before catching the ferry.
Roscoff is in Finistere, part of Brittany - the top left hand corner of France. Finistere is one of those wonderful, magical sounding names I have heard for years on the BBC's shipping forecast and it was lovely to actually be there.
Roscoff is a very pretty little town on the end of a small peninsular with the ferry port on one side and a fishing harbour on the other.
I was also fascinated by an island called Ile de Batz just off to the left of the peninsular. The Vedette - a regular boat/bus service to the island runs either from the harbour or the end of a long pier depending on the tide!
The small town is very pretty and we enjoyed a morning visiting the harbour, church and small shops.

 The'bus' heading for the pier with the Ile de Batz in the background.

Have a lovely Christmas.
