looking towards Plymouth Sound from the circular viewing platform at the top of the tower.
On the right hand side of the picture, the River Tamar flows out into The Sound.
The River Plym flows into The Sound from the other side.
When you sail out of the Sound turn to Starboard (right) for the Atlantic Ocean, and Port (left) to sail along the English Channel, through the narrows between England and France, at Dover, and on up into the North Sea. If you sail straight out and keep going South for about 95 miles,you will reach the beautiful Breton town of Roscoff.
You may notice on the near bank of the Tamar a tall, slender mast on a green hill, come back tomorrow and take a closer look.

The Tower was designed by John Foulston as part of the development of the town of Devonport, then a separate town from its neighbour Plymouth, and completed in 1824. It has come through some very difficult times, for example the Blitz of Plymouth in World war 2. But it is still there, along with the other two buildings in the picture, and thanks to a grant from the Heritage Fund , of the National Lottery, it was refurbished and is open to anyone who wants to climb the 137 steps up the inside of the tower to the observation platform at the top.

"New research shows that condensation trails from aircraft exhaust are playing a significant role in global warming. Experts are concerned that efforts to change aviation engine design to reduce CO2 emissions could actually create more contrails and raise daily temperatures even more."

This Tank Farm is not in Plymouth, it is further along the south coast near Southampton,
but what caught my eye was the single line of wind turbines at the rear,
I doubt they will do much to mitigate the global warming potential of the contents of the tanks.
You will need to enlarge the image to see them.
