Finnish Lighthouses 1909

And because Trollop 23 left a comment about "what about the ones that that were just begun"....... Here's a pic of Start Point lighthouse, in Devon, England, pinched, I confess from Mat Dickson, here .
I'll email and retroask his permission.


  1. what about the ones that that were just begun!??!
    tee hee!

  2. I see you take an interest in lighthouses and I searched in vain for the pictures I took on my honeymoon of the one at Cape Hatteras North Carolina. I finally gave up and googled it and found this shot of it being moved from it's perch too close to a mutable shoreline, to a more suitable location inland. Strange business. I wish I knew how to link in comments because this one is a real toad choker.

  3. A Toad Choker!!!!!!

    Better I don't ask for a definition.....

    Yes, I've always had a sneaking admiration for lighthouses.
    Not like an obsession or anything weird, but they tend to be built in places of beauty, and be fascinating as architecture.
    That moving of the Hatteras Light is amazing. The link did not work so I googled Images, Hatteras Light Moving.
    I will find out how in-comment links are done, it bugs me too. In the meantime, visit to learn a simple, easy way to shorten huge web addresses.
    That might work...

  4. Sorry to be so long in getting back, but I've been putting in 12 hour days at work this week and skipping lunch. It really gets in the way of my blogging I must say. I'm glad you were able to find the Hatteras light house move even if the link didn't work. I still haven't found those pictures from the honeymoon, but we climbed to the top and took some shots of the barrier island and the ocean that are really beautiful. The toad choker, as you already know from my email, is a storm of such porportions that even toads could drown. It is often used in the southern US to describe something overwhelming. I keep forgetting that we are divided by a common language, so you will have to pardon my colloquialisms.
