Ugljan-Croatia-2

 

Looking from Fort St. Michael to a recently erected communications tower on the island of Ugljan.  There's also a tower in the middle of the ruined fort - not exactly a culturally sensitive location!  However, mobile phone connectivity was excellent :-)

 

Returning from Wales today - commenting likely to be limited.

Now...this looks like a very pleasant place to take a little exercise, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Indeed it was, Ray
but no ticketed entries there i imagine, Tom. it still looks like a beautiful spot to stretch some legs.
Tom Wilson: Most people stay down on the coast, so there's plenty of room for joggers smile
Bel endroit pour se promener. Bon retour !
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine.
Quite a view from up there!
Tom Wilson: Oh indeed! Very fine views all around.
Intrusive doesn't cover it Tom...
Tom Wilson: How about insensitive smile

Tom Wilson: And I'm standing with my back to another older mast!

Croatia seems to get things done.
Tom Wilson: It seems to be developing quite well economically, but, as usual, not everyone benefits!
Who cares about some old fort when you can get onto facebook ?
Tom Wilson: Yes, we've got to move with the times, haven't we???

I can imagine walking along here
Tom Wilson: It's very pleasant, Lisl - and, as you see, a lovely day.

Heck, even if I do it almost daily, I still don't like going uphill by foot. But, what a view - I see beyond the tower.
Tom Wilson: It's impossible in Sheffield not to walk uphill! The city is built on nine of them!
A really nice outlook from there Tom even with the tower. Hope you've had a great time during your visit to Wales.
Tom Wilson: Had a very good time, including a trip up Snowdon by the railway - on a beautiful day.
Ha ha. I can bet your reception was excellent.
Tom Wilson: No problems at all smile

What a great view on the sea as I assume, but the young man is more interested in his smartphone news.
Tom Wilson: Perhaps he is following a sat nav smile
Where it seems like one can see forever out into the distance, Tom!
Tom Wilson: Wonderful views on all sides, Ginnie - put it on your bucket list smile

That is a wonderful view, Tom. I looked at the map and it looks like that we will be close there next year. I am looking forward to our trip.
