9/26.- Ouessant, Landscape (Wet)


The island used to produce its own crops of grain -- so much, actually, that all the windmills of the island were not enough to grind all the grain into flour. But no longer so. The windmills have gone (one has been preserved as a historical monument) and today, only one tenth or so of the island's surface is devoted to agriculture. The soil is rocky and, at places, covered by only a shallow layer of spongy earth, which will not absorb all the rainwater.
