Dellimara Lighthouse, Malta

well, one more card for today....after a train, follows a lighthouse...this time one from Malta

this is the Delimara lighthouse, situated on the Delimara fort. This fort was built between 1876 and 1888 by the British. It is mostly underground, with the fort's main armament mounted in casemates set in the cliffs on the shoreward face of Delimara Point. At the surface it is a polygonal fort, rectangular in outline, with rock cut ditches on three sides, and the gently curving vertical cliff forming the convex fourth side. Ventilation apertures and access passageways are spread out across the face of the cliff, and even out onto the seaward face of Point Delimara.

well, there are plenty of cards in my stocks, waiting to be posted...but I think this will be enough for today...im off into the fresh air a bit..I quite much need it! Stay well!
