@ossobucotemp,
I have to find a way to move them to my account - my friend's hubby is very un-share-y.

@ehBeth,
weve steamed past Quaco Light many times (High tide usually or in daylight to skim the channels).
There was an old gypsum pit off th Head, one of the reasons they set up an Eco- heritage site there.

A romantic view ...

... of Westkapelle High Light (Westkapelle, Zeeland, Netherlands
That's a round cast iron tower with lantern and gallery atop a 40 m square brick church tower.
From 1906, station established 1818, church tower built between about 1458 and 1470. (The church, except for the tower, burned in 1831, and since then the tower has served solely as a lighthouse.)

@Walter Hinteler,
so the Westkapelle Light is an example of a sustainable powered light?

@cicerone imposter,
I posted a photo of the lighthouse in Trinidad (CA) here one time. I do like Trinidad, a small port town, a lot.

The storm Axel brought fierce weather to Germany early on Wednesday morning... but the worst is yet to come, possibility the most severe flooding in over a decade on the Baltic Sea coast.

@Ceili,
Interesting life. I always wantd to stay at a working (manned) lighthouse, but I dont think ny of em have stffs ny more.

I hiked out to Turkey Point one day lst week nd its a lonely promontory overlooking a portion of the Chesapeake bay where hip make a turn to enter the Baltimore harbor about 20 miles across. There was a keepers house there till the late 1950's when it was knocked down nd the lighthouse raised about 3 feet.I love lonely points of land that jut into the sea

@farmerman,
I've been once on a manned lighthouse, just a short visit, though. (More interesting for me in those days was, when I'd been on a lightvessel for a cup of tea.)

@Walter Hinteler,
all our lightships are marine museums at tourist cities. They are sort of on design and they look uncomfortable for the crew. We used to have three on the lower Delaware Bay shoals and a few on the lower Chesapeake bay

Id like to have this thread be a collection of lighthouse pictures (photos, sketches etc). Ill start with one I included on y Sailing journal thread. This lighthouse, the East Quoddy Head light, is a typical Canadian beacon. The "cross " design is typical , as opposed to the "Barberpole" designs of the US and others..
This photo was from a collection by an Eastport Maine photographer Don DUnbar. His work , has grown in competence and complexity over the years since he began doing it as a vocation

     http://www.easternmaineimages.com/August2009/aug7,09,eqstorm3a_std.jpg




This lighthouse is our favorite because its a view of home whenever we return from a deepwater expedition. Its the last light from the HEad HArbour and into the Gulf Of Maine and the ATlantic.

Please post yer favs .


I have made a point all my life of deeply despising envy...It is one of those corner stones that make or break a relationship...
...as time goes by the nobility of my being is decaying no doubts...every time you come on the forums to speak about your ocean expeditions I get jealous of you old man. I just hope you have a blast every time you go out on your research. All the best for the thread great idea!

Same here.

However, for instance, lightship "Elbe 2" became the barquentine "Atlantis

And the "Alexander von Humboldt" ...

... is the former "reserve lightship Kiel".

The lightvessel "Aussenjade" became "lightvessel P8", later "lightvessel "T/W Ems" (always on different positions), and finally the "Sunthorice"

(Quite a lot of interesting information on the website, like the original plan)
