One of my favourite places to be is at the beach with my family at the end of the day. When the crowds have gone home, and I can hear the waves splashing and the kids laughing (and maybe sometimes arguing a tad 🤪) and the sun is making its way down for the night. It’s so calming and offers me an opportunity to be mindful of the moment I’m in and how much I have to be grateful for!! #southampton#beach#beachlife#family#sunsets#chantryisland#lighthouse#summer
The #West Point #lighthouse was built in 1916 on the most westerly point of #Tasmania
It was replaced in 1982 by the #Bluff Hill Point Lighthouse a short distance to the south. All that remains is the #concrete base.
Boats! It’s National Lighthouse Day! There are few landscapes as picturesque as a lighthouse along a coast. They’ve been helping boats for years! But the quiet postcard image belies a dramatic history, one filled with heroism and adversity. National parks along both coasts and the shores of our Great Lakes tell these stories with lighthouses, lifesaving stations, artifacts, and exhibits. They remind us of our nation’s maritime history and of the families and individuals who braved the elements to offer safe passage and save lives.
What lighthouses have you visited?
