Travel center / Lighthouse Trails
May 22, 2024, 03:07:59 PM
Lighthouse trails are an easy way to explore lighthouses by car or hiking.
The hiking trail in Galicia is the second trail I know.
The first famous lighthouse route I went by car was in Nova Scotia !
Who knows other famous routes?
O CamiƱo dos Faros that runs through loads of different landscapes always looking at the sea towards the West. Lighthouses, beaches, dunes, rivers, cliffs, forests, estuaries with a great variety of birds, "castros" ("hill-forts"), dolmens, fishing villages, viewpoints from where to enjoy how the sea breaks in all ways possible, sunsets and so on. A hiking route different from the others that will take the hiker to a world full of unique sensations only enjoyable in this Costa da Morte.
A very strange light, like a sentry box, I have seen in Ericeira, Portugal !
Does anyone know of a comparable lightfire somewhere ?

News / European Route of Lighthouses
September 27, 2023, 05:51:03 AM
The "European Route of Lighthouses" was founded in Brussels on September 7, 2023.
The "European Route of Lighthouses", ERoL for short, aims to highlight the cultural significance and
possible uses of European lighthouses based on their past or present function
as a sea mark and navigation aid.
Shortenly Mitko has uploaded a picture of this light.I have found a new situation! I believe also Peter has not found this light in 2022 ! Most web sites still mention this light, but it exist never more! :(

Lighthouse identification / Chumpon, Southern Thailand
February 18, 2023, 12:54:29 AM
Five years ago I have been first time in Chumpon, Southern Thailand with a large harbour !
I have made severel pics and uploaded to World of Lighthouses.Alex Trabas wrote me at this time, I have missed the Admiralty F2924.2 and F2924.3.
So I returned recently again to Chumpon to make pics from the missed lights.
Now Alex Trabas revised all geographical positions. Now I had to correct all my pictures as well.I hope everything is correct now.
Lighthouse Directory from Russ Rowlett is very useful for all of us lighthouse lovers. But often I see great differences for height of the tower and focal plane elevation from Open Sea Map.
For instance: Roscoff ! A1812.1 Russ: 24 and 24, Open Sea : 15 and 24 (seems realistic )
Or the beacons in sea: A1818, Russ :20 and 14, Open Sea : 8 and 14 (seems realistic ) and so on...
Travel center / France, Normandy; Barfleur

In Google Maps the Rear und Front lighthouses in Barfleur are named as Le Phare de la Bretonne and Phare du Cracko ! Where do the names come from?
Is it the only movable Range Rear in the world?  It can be moved laterally according to the requirements of the fairway. I have never seen before!
A video for all lighthouse friends!

General Discussion / Danish lighthouse list
August 24, 2020, 04:07:33 PM
The topic about national lighthouse lists  was discussed 5 years ago!
After a short trip to Denmark I noticed that the link does not work anymore!  :( Who knows the new link?
Greifswalder Oie lighthouse is well known. I was surprised to find ARLHS FED-355 in ARLHS list. This small tower is known as old fog horn! Was it lighted someday? A coal fire ?
I have no idea, where I have made this picture, must be before 2000, Italy, France, Spain...Must be mediterranean area...
