Riga today - sea, downtown

Today I visited Daugavgrivas island - western part of it. This area is the most north west located part of Riga - island, flanked by three rivers and Bay of Riga.

I climbed fire watch tower (9/10 of it). Results here - downtown Riga some 20 kms away. Driving with car, this place is almost 30 kms away from center, but still in Riga

Looking north east

Northwest RIGA And Bay of Riga

Island in Buļļupe river

Vakarbuļļi beach - view northeast. Daugavgrivas island is 10 kms long, here you can see 7-8 kms of it

Sand art

As usual - beaches in Latvia are wide, sandy and nice

View northeast. I ran out of batteries here, so more pictures from this island you will see next year - there are more places to see...

View from Dzegužkalns hill - looking southeast

Lot of chimneys in this area

Looking south

View from Kipsala island - one of my favorite views

Saules akmens - Hansabanka HQ

In the Old Town

Later I will add few more pics.
