Friday Fun: Lighthouses in Dangerous Places

By definition, lighthouses are usually located in dangerous places, but these ones seem to be more endangered than most.

The notorious Fastnet Lighthouse in Ireland, scene of many a shipwreck.
OK, so this one doesn’t look dangerous at all, but so picturesque I couldn’t resist. The Tajer Lighthouse in Croatia.
They are selling off quite a few lighthouses in the US at the moment, so you might be able to get your hands on this one, Poeriff Lighthouse on Lake Michigan, from Town and Country.
The Tourlitis Lightouse in Andros, Greece, from My Andros Hotel website.
Possibly the loveliest and scariest one of all is in Iceland again, from Iceland Monitor.

Friday Fun: Get Thee to a Lighthouse

It’s a grey, gloomy Friday over here, with menacing clouds and raindrops all the way. Time to imagine an escape, methinks… And where better to escape than to a lighthouse. Or is that as unattainable as in Virginia Woolf’s novel?

Just think of all the writing you could get done with no interruptions, no Internet, perhaps just the occasional storm to keep you awake…
