While walking along the beach to the Port you will see looming out of the mist what appears to be a single large concrete dock, stuck in the middle of the sea beyond the port. This is exactly what it once was. This construction was the loading dock for ships to deliver and receive their cargo from the land to sea cable car conveyor. It is accompanied by two monstrous concrete Pylons that supported the long gone cables and cars on their journey through the sky to the hill station up on the cliff, a few kilometres inland from the dock. The cable car hill station is an immense concrete bunker within which Barbary Falcons make their home in its upper recesses. Outside the hill station hanger lie the last abandoned cargoes to be transported ashore. Piles of 38 year old telegraph poles lie cracked and split, from exposure to the desert weather. A whole fleet of white and blue fibre glass fishing boats had been rescued from the sea, only to be abandoned up in the desert!

podle popisu to místo zní pěkně zpustle, ale obrázek je to pěkný. Moc se mi líbí kompozice s pěkně saturovanými barevnými "pásy". Nebe s jemnými mráčky je nádherné.
Hezký den přeje
