A Visit To Wamo Lookout Point
January 21, 2013 6:15 PM



Yesterday I took my dog Lisen for a Sunday stroll in the lovely Wamo Park here in Karlskrona in Sweden. But before we got to the Wamo Park we walked up to the nearby Wamo Lookout Point, where I had actually never been before, to check out the view. So below are some photos from our visit to Wamo Lookout Point yesterday.

The first thing Lisen did was to check out the little house up there.

Then she started to inspect the surrounding area.

And it did not take long before she spotted something that captured her attention the whole time we were up there, another doggy of course! Lol!

So while Lisen was keeping a close eye on the dog, I stepped into the lookout house and snapped some shots of the surroundings.

Farthest away there is the ocean. On the big field on the other side of the road a big ice arena was located for many years, but it was torn down a few years ago. The same field is also, and has always been as long as I can remember, a popular place for circuses to set up when they come to town. The apartment buildings to the left are located in a neighbourhood called Annebo.

On the big field on this side of the road there used to be tennis courses, but they were also torn down a few years ago. Now it is just a big parking lot.

Behind all the trees and up the hill straight ahead lies the big hospital here in Karlskrona.

But Lisen did not care at all about any of those sights, all she had her eyes on was the dog down there...

After about ten minutes we headed back down again.

But we made one more stop, at the stele: ”Göternes camp 1811”. This stele was erected in memory of the troops from Kalmar and Kronoberg regiments as well as the Gota artillery, which were stationed to Wamo back then.

Finally (well, it was not a long way to walk up there - maybe five minutes) back down from the lookout point, next stop - the Wamo Park.
