Interesting to see the work going on in the port at the moment. It would seem that some of the old moorings have been removed and a new concrete quay is being put in.
I too was mesmerised by the parbuckling of the Costa Concordia and fell in love with this beautiful island. I believe the anniversary of the grounding of the ship is in a few days time. My thoughts go to all those who died and their relatives and admiration to all those involved in the rescue of the passengers and crew and everyone who took part in righting the ship and restoring the waters, hopefully to it's former beauty.
29OCT17--years ago I had found the HOST 's web site due to my interest in the engineering feat of parbuckling the Costa Concordia, I would have 5 or 6 'tabs' open each with a giglio news 'still shot cam'. IIRC the ship had been floated away to Genoa but there was still lots of activity related to that incident in the Giglio port,,I would open a browser , load up a different cam in its own tab , then go back and watch each cam for several minutes. My jaw hit the floor and my eyes bugged out and I questioned just how many adult beverages I had consumed. The main 'port of Giglio' cam seemed to be broken , it was not showing 5 or 6 pictures every minute, but what seemed like hundreds or even thousands of pictures every minute. HA HA , my introduction to SkylineWebcam's 'live cams'. Sadly I don't view Giglio nearly as much now as back then. You can guess why. Interestingly enough on one of the host's other cams one can still see the barge with the big host/crane used in reconstructing the sea floor. ( at least I think that is what that barge is), A big THANK YOU to the host of this 'live cam' GIGLIO NEWS .
oh good, back to the original viewpoint.......
interesting new viewpoint but Iiked seeing the cafe
THIS CAM IS BEGGING FOR A MICROPHONE
going to enjoy this cam and such clarity, wish it had sound though! :)
What a stunning view..........Summer should be gr8This one with cam so close definitely needs sound
Alan,If you click on the "Hosted by Gigio News" it will take you to Giglio news website where there are several more webcams. Someone tweeted that link to me on the day that they were "righting" the Concordia & moving it to a temporary pad under the sea to prepare it for refloating, They had a camera that's still there pointed straight at the operation. I never took my eyes off this operation right up to the day she was floated and towed to GenoaWhen the refloating started, another more professional webcam was set up, with sound and a really good close up of the goings on. I watched this cam daily also, the men working the project stopping for coffee or whatever where those blue umbrellas are. There are some great pictures on the Giglio websiteI need to write the story of how utterly fascinated I was with this engineering feat & watching the comings & goings of the people of Giglio. I really hope to get there some day in my travels
great to see this cam at long last pity it was not there last year when all the work was going on refloating the cruise liner
Super moja ulubiona kamera z wyspy Giglio dziękuję
