PR Parte Cuatro: The Fort

Old forts are awesome! I love to explore them and imagine what it must have been like to fight battles, or imagine even everyday things, like cooking and mending weapons. I don’t know why but it has always been fascinating to me. This fort was this beautiful structure right on the shore.

Words aren’t nearly as pretty as pictures:

One the way to the fort we passed by some nice little scenery elements. Dig this awesome tree and fountain!

And here’s a little mini fortress wall, complete with happy little palm trees…and a pretty ocean overlook

Now we are nearing the actual fort!

I dig the architectural elements!

This is me, passed the hell out and resting my back after a long day of exploration:

And this is me and mia cheezing in front of the fort

So there…that’s the fort. To be honest I was far too awe-struck totake more photos once we got inside…it was glorious!!! I stood around mouth agape, and then I spent the rest of the time bounding through halls, passages, and winding narrow stairwells; pearing into closed tunnels and sticking my head where it shouldn’t be to get a peak of what was behind closed doors; I even traced the entire aqueduct, walking it when I could and following the line through the walls to the other side. I guess you’ll just have to go see it yourself.
