Boats at Pula, Sardinia, Italy

I took this photograph while walking around the historic ruins of Nora, according to my uncle (and my memory) this is Pula Harbour. Traditionally it was one of the best places to keep a boat on the island because it was so protected from the wind and weather. This would explain why the Phoenicians founded Nora in the 8th Century BC. Sadly, this small harbour is silting up and a lot of the bigger boats have been moved down the coast.
