Misc

A nice low tide at the harbour...







.. I think this is known as "rats corner" .. ?






The Albert Pierhead






Not far away, the new incinerator continues to take shape, with shiny exhaust pipe to the power station's stack.




From the South.






Those kart people would have you believe that few people use the Ronez loop road, but I was there and so were THREE other cars - even on an overcast day with no great view of the distant coasts at the time! So PLEASE don't let them steal this public road for their own selfish permanent use!

More planning madness...







.. a massive gated community takes shape...







.. and luxury house.






The newly uncovered bunker at Noirmont - complete with original wall decoration and lino on the floor...






.. and a more recent inscription on the ceiling of the escape shaft! (Shaft being the operative word)





A model of the tunnels at St.Aubin gives a good idea how large they are...







.. and here's a map of German railways on the island during the occupation, for what it's worth.




Lots of plane trails to the south of Noirmont. Maybe it does affect the amount of sunshine we get?

I agree - the last 2 sets are intriguing! Photos of things people don't usually bother with but are well worth looking at!
Brilliant :)
