Fragile life part two

~ As every thread of gold is valuable, so is every moment of time~ John Mason ~

What happens when three Flickr photographers go out and about in Brittany?...Why we get in each others shots, get out of the way! Petit Minou, Purpleruthie, & Blu.

We went on a hot summers day, to take a look at the Champ Dolent, one of the many menhir's (huge stones) in Bretagne.

Tall stories & a Tall Stone!

There are many myths and folklores, about this Menhir, one is that a battle was once fought between two feuding brothers. When the fighting was at its height, and the field was running with blood, the menhir sprang up between the two sides, amazed by the miracle, the armies ceased fighting and made peace.

Little and Large

Location of the Champ Dolent HERE.

French word surgir for a person or animal to suddenly spring up, not sure about large stones!

Wow - that really is an amazing stone. Love the legend that it brought peace.
