Of Ventspils: Breakwater

It was not long after our trip to Cape Kolka that we visited Ventspils. And the big crazy concrete blocks in Kolka have nothing on these big crazy concrete things. They built a big long breakwater by the port and mouth of the Venta river out of them, with a long path and a lighthouse at the end. The lesson, as always, is that the Soviets apparently never met a problem they couldn't solve with creatively used concrete.
