Photographer's Note

Dinard (Dinarzh Breton and Gallo Dinard) is a French commune, located in the department of Ille-et-Vilaine and the Brittany region. She is a famous seaside resort, especially with the British.
The resort of Dinard, seventh most populated town of Ille-et-Vilaine, is located on the Emerald Coast, close to the boundary with the Cotes d'Armor and the city of Saint Malo (where Rance is the separation). It is the La Rance tidal power plant, located on the town of La Richardais, technological prowess of the 1960s and tourist mecca, which connects Dinard and the City Corsair.
Nearby are the Channel Islands accessible to one hour of high-speed boat from St. Malo or 15 minutes by plane from the airport of Dinard Pleurtuit Saint-Malo. Until 1987, the city was served directly in the season by a Corail train from Paris-Montparnasse-Dinard. This link has been removed and the station dating from the late nineteenth century, which was nearly closed [ref. necessary], was demolished in the 2000s. However, access to Dinard was found recently facilitated by the arrival of the TGV train linking Paris to Saint-Malo in less than three hours and with a coach connection. For motorists, the free expressways make up for the lack of highway. The four main beaches in the city are the beaches of the Priory of the Lock, St. Enogat and Port-Blanc. There are other beaches, unmonitored and smaller, accessible via the coastal path that connects the Priory of Port-Blanc (Malouine beaches, port-Riou, Notre-Dame-du-Roc ...).
