Cap d'Afrique
Mahdia, Tunisia

The area at the end of the peninsula is quite nice, being dominated by a red lighthouse and scattered remains of Fatimid fortifications (to the right on top photo). I visited early one August morning, a time of the day when sea and sky almost melts together in a smooth haze.
