Harbor hidden parts - my harbor walk continues

in Wednesday Walk2 months ago

A few days ago I came across a movie on TV. Quite by accident, because I don't watch that kind of stuff - bombastic American action, blockbuster, you know - with all the famous Hollywood actors and stuff. But, filmed for cheaper in Bulgaria.


I went on the Internet to see which locations they used for their purposes and surprise - some of the photos were taken in a port. Not what I am showing you, but the port of the Bulgarian "sea capital" Varna.
The tricky part is that the action is set in Somalia. But they took the photos in a Bulgarian port. And at the port of the largest and most important Black Sea city in the country.


So, I've never been to Somalia, but I guess the producers are banking on the fact that a lot of people haven't been there and that it doesn't really matter what a Somali port actually looks like. And yet I thought about the Bulgarian ports.
You know that last week I started showing you my harbor walk in my favorite seaside city Burgas. I have no idea how you perceive this site from the pictures I have shown you so far and will show you today, but for me it is a very pleasant place. Especially in its initial part - the mysterious monument of Boyan the Magician, which I showed you once and which no longer exists, then the rest of the art pieces, the congress center and the magnificent building of the marine station...

(The beautiful white building of the congress center in the background with the "monster" next to it.)

(The marine station.)

These are some amazing views I saw on my harbor walk then.

I think, that's more or less the more representative part of the area, of the whole port infrastructure.


Because continuing your walk into the harbor, to the yacht club and approaching the lighthouse, the view little by little begins to change. Completely imperceptible.


If we look at the details, we will notice some things.



Like how old and worn out some marine gear is. Even (and mostly) on the grounds of the yacht club.


(Yacht club sounds expensive otherwise, doesn't it?) 😃

After taking these pictures, I can now explain why a Bulgarian port can be presented as a Somali one.


Here, the place I reached during my walk, is quite, as if remote from civilization. It is separated from all the people who walk calmly along the waters of the harbor, ie. it is a less visited place. Maybe that's why the first time I came here, I thought that it was a restricted area and you couldn't go inside. But here it can. And although there are quite a few boats and yachts moored here, and there are always some people there, the place still seems abandoned.


Finally comes the lighthouse - the main goal of the walk today. The end point. The center of attraction.
Can one walk on a harbor and not reach the lighthouse - the most important thing in such a place? Pretty much impossible.


It's really the end of that territory now, you know. And this place is the quietest and most remote.

And yet, I was amazed to find this thing here, laid out like this.


Abandoned and broken wooden fishing boat.


I admit it is beautiful. I love old wooden fishing boats, no matter what condition they are in. I can't stop taking pictures of their weathered, haggard bodies.
But this is not the place for this boat - in a more or less modernized port.


Still, Gosh, how many things one could see and encounter just on a harbor walk! I'm ready to show you more next time. Don't want for my posts to become unnecessarily huge. Although I know, no one can get tired of port and sea stuff.

So see you next week on this wonderful occasion! Happy #WednesdayWalk!

Wow, great pictures. Interesting fact about the movie. It looks so bright and the sea is almost turquoise 🙂 I live in Stockholm and here it's pretty dark this time of the year, haha.

Here is also not that bright at the moment. Still Bulgaria very often surprises. Even the local people 🤭
In every respect 😊

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!

I think all cities, especially the biggest ones, have their bright and dark sides. I mean in terms of luxurious and abandoned and going into ruins spots. The bigger the city is, the bigger the contrasts are! :)
Isn't that beautiful? :)


Sure! "The bigger the city is, the bigger the contrasts are" - that's absolutely true.
At the Bulgarian coast, there are so many things that surprise me, but I even can't find the right words for them. Probably the port of Varna surprises me most with its old shabby appearance.
Yet that's a topic for a another post...

I've been there a few times and I agree, there is always something new to surprise me!

Such beautiful photos love the blues
I think many movie producers assume most of the people who see their movies wont know when they are filmed in other locations and pretend to be somewhere else

Thanks for joining the Wednesday, its always fun for me to visit the walks from all around the world, getting a feel for communities where people live and what they see on their daily walks

Don't know. In Imdb, the location is a very important section (I think) and I often check there when some movie impresses me with something. Anyway, what happens in the movie industry is a mystery basically 😃
Glad you liked the pictures!

thats something i should check more often, IMDB to check when I suspect the location isnt what they want us to think it is

It's a very beautiful sea station once, I can't imagine if only there was such a port here, maybe I would visit it every day,

Ha ha, I think the say about my life too 😊 - if I lived there, I would do the same too! Unfortunately, that's not the place I live.

🤭🤭 I also imagine the same thing, a new world that has never been tried

Страхотни снимки, браво 😃👏

no one can get tired of port and sea stuff.

I know I won't. Wow, such lovely photos here! Wish the lighthouse could be explored as well. :) I'm fascinated by lighthouses. It's lovely to see the hidden parts of the harbor. Thank you for taking us on this adventure. An advance happy weekend.

You are not the only one. 🤭 I think I'll write about it next time, together with other pictures I managed to take of the place. Glad you liked it! 😊

I love pretty much everything around the ocean. I live in far east Big Island, Hawai'i, and the ocean is so beautiful and mesmerizing here. Thank you again for sharing such a lovely set of photos! 😁 🙏 💚 ✨ 🤙

Gorgeous photos! The facts about parts of the movie being filmed there is so curious! The old fishing boat sitting there in such an atypical location is also curious, and quite striking! Thank you for sharing your walk! 😁🙏💚✨🤙

I enjoyed reading this post. I love your colorful, detailed, and clear photos, building up to the highlight of the lighthouse. I also love how you point out how things can be perceived by people just by making assumptions... Such as Hollywood who are shooting scenes in a Bulgarian port while the action is set in Somalia, yet nobody is questioning the reality of it. Also, how you point out that when you mention a yacht club, it "sounds" expensive. It's amazing how the image of luxury and expensive yachts just pops up in your head...lol.

Thank you for sharing your walk with us!
