Also the lagoon was covered by fog. There is also no way to get direct to the lagoon. You can only enjoy the view from a distance.

I saw some steal boxes like this one in front of a house. They use it to put their garbage bags in it to be picked up. I guess it more
protected like this from the dogs wandering around.
