@tsarstepan,
We went whale watching near Tadoussac a few years ago. It's so weird to see a lighthouse out in the middle of the river.

Heres the ESAPERANZA lighthouse in Hope Bay, Antarctica. This was built in 1975 to serve the incoming traffic at several embarking points for scientists, equip , and other stuff.           http://www.trabas.de/bilder/band_g/gross/G1389.jpg

@ossobuco,
On top of the link error, I quoted the wrong post.

I think I've done enough damage for a while. Better go wash the dishes..

@Tai Chi,
It's seems like a surreal placement for a lighthouse. One reason I would love to reside there.

Since there is no way to figure out the scale of this lighthouse (by looking at the photo) do you have an idea on how tall the structure is?

We SAW THIS via cruiser coming up the Belle Isle STraights. (These are very treacherous waters and we postponed the trip via our own boat on this stretch of water.)
Belle ISle straights Lighthouse is near St ANthony's in NEwfoundland.

Notice the actual flying buttresses. pretty nifty tech these Canajuns use eh?

I wonder if these buttresses are more in existence for structural rather then aesthetic reasons. If so, I wonder if the immediate area is subject to some pretty strong weather (waves and wind)?

@tsarstepan,
OH definately. I didnt mean to make it sound that they were decorative. They are totally functional.

@farmerman,
It seems like the lighthouse tower is safer then the house in times of a particularly strong and dangerous storm. I'd sleep in the lighthouse tower before I sleep in the house.

@tsarstepan,
Heres a picture of the Nantucket Lightship. These things are pretty much cookie cuttered .Most were built in the early 1900's to about 1938. Many have been converted to tourist sites , like the Overfalls Lightship in Lewes SDel . The Nantucket Lightship (one of several past versions) has been sitting in Oyster Bay for many years. It was sold to a group of Boston Investors for 1$. They take lots of TLC and restoration to repair 75 years of salt water corrosion on their hulls and low decks.

@farmerman,
Cape Hatteras Lighthouse on The Outer Banks of N.C.

Strange, those iron clad vessels dubbed this portion "The Graveyard of the Atlantic."

Odd, farmerman. Can't get it to work somehow. Here is the link.
