Wordless #9

This Wordless is an explanation of Wordless #8

York Redoubt is a fortress that was built in 1793, situated on a bluff overlooking the Halifax harbour entrance. This fort is located near my home, and hubby and I often go to there for a stroll or sometimes make the hike down to the shore. This photo is of a tower along the shore, overlooking the harbour. This area of the fort is deteriorating and undergoing restoration hence the "Danger" sign in my previous post - Wordless #8.

What a great image; I dont think it looks spooky, though, just-stark and noble.
