Photographer's Note

Here we can see the new lighthouse in Cape Point, you saw the oldest one some posts ago. The oldest was abandoned around 100 years ago when a Portuguese boat suffered a shipwreck in this zone, the new lighthouse was build some meters higher to escape of the constant fogs in the area.

..................................................

Vemos aqui o farol mais novo em Cape Point, o farol antigo foi mostrado há alguns dias numa postagem minha. Há mais de cem anos um navio português naufragou aqui e depois decidiram erguer um farol num ponto mais alto e a salvo dos constantes nevoeiros desta área.
