Let me make a start with photos made during the Estonia Lighthouse Tour, September 16-23, 2006. Just a short overview of the main lighthouses we visited. There were a lot of othe beacons and secundary lights we have seen, but some others will post photos as well.

Thank you for posting the pictures. It makes me want to go on another lighthouse trip soon. Maybe someday I will go to another country.
