added another 2 to collection.

Fleetwood, Lancanshire..

Fleetwood Low and Fleetwood Front ( which still Shines ) pretty poor day for taking photos... howling gale and driving rain.

Photo of remains of the Wyre light in estuary didnt come out on digi cam. too much mist.

Good excuse to go up there again in Summer :)

Nice to have someone from Cymru here on the forums, Ian! I have friends in S. Glamorgan that I first met in 1995 when they were over here. I had the pleasure of providing lodging to a lovely young woman for the summer. Her mother also came for a brief visit following her trip to her home country of Columbia. Her husband was Welsh. They met over here at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. Coincidently I had just been to Wales the year before. Unfortunately I have yet to return. I've enjoyed your site and look forward to it's additions. :)

sorry for the confusion :wink:

proposed at Paphos point.

took loads of pics at Paphos point and at Cape Kitti.

the other lights were unaccessable. they are on British Soverenty areas. people with big Guns ask too many questions otherwise.


got a few of the Harbour pier / breakwater lights. mainly a "Light on a Stick" plus a few Day markers...


cant wait for them to be developed , cost a small fortune tho :(

ah well,

We have not gotten an answer to the question of did your girl friend say Yes to marrying you. Does she like lighthouses half as much as you do?
