Beautiful lighthouse, not much of a light, though.

Pretty lighthouse and the island sounds like a great place for a weekend getaway!

You're right Bill. Hadn't spotted the tiny bulb.

Yes Hilda, Hoping to spend a lazy weekend there someday.

Do the other ex-pats have as much fun as you, exploring?

I'd always thought that lighthouses were supertall, this one looks short.

There's the odd expat around doin the same thing but none quite as barmy as me.

Got a feeling the lighthouse is just for show, hence its size.

San Diego farm girl should like it given it resemblance to a phallus!
