New pier in my town

A view from the new pier. Sunset over the Atlantic Ocean.

Where Douro river meets the Atlantic Ocean a new concrete pier was recently built. It was meant to prevent frequent floods.
The worst happened on Christmas 1909. After days of heavy rain, the river went up 11 meters, flooding and destroying many houses and shops in Porto and Gaia cities.

On a new pier beware of wind, waves ( can reach 10 meters ) and splash. Never enter during the storm weather.
