It's been a while, but it's time for the next update in this random CJ. It's called 'City Island', and it is about a city on an island. Today is also my birthday, and it's a chance I've had to finally update this CJ, which I have had the pictures available for a while but I just haven't had time to create the actual update.
We'll kick today's update off with a shot of some nice towers overlooking the newly built and unopened Airport Highway. The towers also have a great view of the seaport which is nearby.
And, here's the port that the towers get a great view of. This port is expanding by the minute.
The port is also dangerous for ships, with shallow waters and pebbles. Lots of pebbles.
Moving inland, we find an old mine that hasn't been used for 200 years. The minerals under the estuary in which the island is were a major trade for the early city.
New and old bridges cross the tramway. The trams first arrived in the city just under 200 years ago. Back then, goods were transported from the mines to the port.
The football pitch at night. The multi-storey carparks are pretty much empty, and the football pitch is closed until the season restarts in late August.
The Old Town is rather quiet at night, with only three cars driving down the normally packed streets.
The marketplace which was built in the late 1500s is still a busy place today, holding markets every Saturday.
This is one of the oldest parts of the tramline. It now follows an embankment above the airport carpark.
And.. the final picture of today's boring update. The airport was decorated as part of it's 25th anniversary last year, and a new flower garden was erected.
I might have a chance to create a summer-special update, but with work for the RTMT on the top of my list, it is slightly unlikely.
Note: all comments are welcome, especially constructive ones.
