Re: Anchor Graveyard Tavira Island, Portugal

The vibes I get from those pics are already very inviting so I'd definitely love to visit the island. I'm a fan of all things surreal so I guess I'd actually enjoy wandering all around that place

From the intro at the beginning: "They built up this anchor graveyard to remember those who had to quit their occupation when the big fish abandoned the coasts."

Re: Anchor Graveyard Tavira Island, Portugal

Interesting that about 90% of the earth in old times was mapped by people from about an 80 mile stretch of coastline... In Portugal. They were serious sailor/explorers. Your post reminded me of them. Cool pics:)
