Whilst rarely used these days for surveying, ‘triangulation pillars’ are still brilliant as navigational aids. Quite often they are the easiest way to spot the highest point on a map (look for a triangle) and the highest point (usually) when out walking (look for a concrete pillar). This one we came across on this walk in the Algarve. As we approached I was hoping for a 360 degree view, however the vegetation had all grown up. So on arrival I pondered climbing on top, but I was quickly disabused of this idea too. Not only was the ledge above my head, but the sides were really steep with no footholds. So here’s an 180 degree view for Debbie’s Six Word Saturday gang, and below a puzzle for everyone.

      1. haven’t opened the box they came in yet! Partly as need to leave things a day or two after they arrive (washing it all such a pain) but mostly to make sure I didn’t eat them πŸ˜‰

    It’s a bit somber of a post, but I love that so many from our village attend the yearly service.
    Becky, your post title is so clever and I probably would have missed what you did if you had not pointed it out.
    Cheers, Amy
