    Lighthouses

    Post by Gypsy on Thu 28 Jun 2012 - 17:52

    I've change this thread because there are loads of lighthouses in Tenerife so this can be dedicated to those.

     

    This lighthouse is located on the far side of Punta del Hidalgo (La Laguna)


    The futuristic looking lighthouse at Buenevista

    Well those lighthouses are certainly different. I like our red and white candy ones though. They last for hundreds of years. Except the one at Hunstanton near me, its about to be falling off the cliff and into the sea. I seem to remember they were talking about moving it back a few yards. Gonna need a big trolley jack.......

    I like the traditional ones with the red stripes. The PDLC one looks like a helter-skelter!

    What about black and white as opposed to red and white - does that float your boat?

    Thats a liquorice one innit, I can see why it may float your boat. Could fit a lot of duracels in that one.
