|Description ||However from the south and north its width can be seen to equal the height. This is a very common size and shape for menhirs in this area of Finistere.|
| Was the tide out when you took this? I never got anywhere near as this to the menhir when I visited it.|

| I am also very surprised. Visited it 2 times 20 years ago and both times it was approximately 30m off shore. |

| I got to about 8 metres away. I took my GPS reading on the edge here. First time visit for me, but the growth of the plants suggests they are not regularly covered by the sea. I like minteddy's idea about global warming, but that should actually have the opposite effect, and raise the sea level shouldn't it !?|
