A Blessing At The Fort

Nestled within the walls of the fort dozens of streets are lined with graceful homes.
Back just before the turtle farm we noticed railroad track running parallel to the highway. In 2005 hundreds and hundreds of people ran for a train that was parked on this track. The people thought that they would be safe from the tsunami wave rolling towards them. The train and all the people were swept out to sea and lost.

Just a few miles further south at the old fort all the homes were safe from the water.

The old homes stayed dry and were safe from the tsunami.

The wall held firm!
