Beautiful view of the coastline and city. Interesting perspective on the cost of fixing and maintaining a historical structure. Part of me says leave it as is...to show the impact of weather and time. Part of me says invest adn improve. It's a stunning location.

Well worth the walk up the hill from town! If you want some gorgeous photos of the island you can’t beat the view from here. Great exercise too!
