"front"beacon Port Theolen

Beacons Port Theolen in May 2004. These little towers we found by chance during our visit in the Bretagne. This peculiar kind of beacon can only exist in France! We have no further informations about this buildings, but we should think so, that they should help the fishermen as a kind of leading line with front and rear "light" to mark the entrance into the right harbour bay.
The greater beacon in the lower picture stands about 500 m away from the little one in the mainland.
