    That's a rather busy little Island. Not much room for a garden each there.What are the buildings there? Lighthouse, butchers, bakers and pub? Where do they get their electricity? and water? and what about sewerage disposal? Won't take long to walk the dog either. Lighthouses - Page 2 1816841243
    I can imagine the conversation..."let's go for a walk". "Where?" Lighthouses - Page 2 3025408739 What's the local footie team called?

    St Marys Ligthouse is 10 minutes down the road from us, it's in Whitley Bay.
    There is a causeway that gives access to mainland very popular tourist spot car parks always full as well.
    There are some stunning photos of it on the interweb.

    Very photogenic buildings are lighthouses.

    Here's ours on Blyth pier:

    Like to claim it as my own photo but it sadly isn't.

    Mmm...that could detract a bit from the essential point of a lighthouse which is to see a flashing light every few seconds or so so as a captain of a vessel can identify which lighthouse it is.
    Here's Dunnet Head lighhouse, the most Northerly lighthouse on the British mainland...
    Lighthouses - Page 2 Imgp2411

    and here's Duncansby Head lighthouse near John O' Groats which isn't quite so northerly...

    There's a flat roof thing going on here, that second one looks like a Canarian house. It even has a window open, brrrrr, and there's that missing balastrade from our balcony on the left........ Lighthouses - Page 2 3025408739
