Finally got around to updating my site and have included a few more pics from Cyprus...

got many more to add as getting photos back from developers slowly.

planning another trip out with camera and Ham radio in a few weeks,

all along South Coast of Wales.... Starting down at Strumble Head, Fishguard then ending up at Cardiff Docks at HV14 Lightship.


For the ones who hold a Ham Licence..

International Lighthouse & Lightship Weekend 21st & 22nd August...
i shall be running special Callsign GB1SSL from South Stack Lighthouse near Holy Head on the isle of Anglesey #WAL025.

sorry forgot to answer this question.
She said YES, very Romantic indeed while visiting Paphos Point Lighthouse on the beautiful Island of Cyprus.

Just as keen as me for visiting all the Lights taking pics, but I take my Ham Radio kit with me while Jayne keeps me company listening to all the fellow enthusiasts chasing the new ones i activate....

Hi Leah...

will have to search thro last pic batch to see if there is anything worth scanning to add to my pages.

got an open invite at Portland Bill Lighthouse from a fellow Ham Radio enthusiast to go and see behind the scenes there.

Digi cam will have freshly charge batteries and the Nikon 35mm with even more Fuji Film...

off tomorrow to travel agents to see if they have any last min bargains for October to venture out to new Lands and MORRRRRREEEEE lights to visit.

one day will be States Side... need to win Lottery first :D

as always you lot will be first to know of any New News i got.

I am enjoying the updates, Ian! I have a couple of questions to ask you concerning Welsh lights but I want to spend more time at your site before I do. (My Dad's side of the family all came from Wales)
