Seal Point Lighthouse


This is one of our favourite spots on the planet, and it doesn't matter if the weather is fine or foul, there is always something so relaxing and awe-inspiring about it..... sitting on these rocks at the base of the lighthouse, watching waves smashing against them, seeing fishing boats and giant tankers skim silently past on the horison (there is a mean reef stretching out from the point so they give it a wide berth!) surfers enjoying the point break, large groups of dolphins going past, and between June and September, watching whales playing nearby. BLISS!

Congratulations for your brand new blog! Love this Lighthouse's photo. It's remember me a painting of a great painter I love so much, Edward Hopper.

Have a nice week ahead!

thanks. Edward Hopper, I am honoured if it reminds you of him because I adore his work!

Well congrats on starting this blog! I had never heard about St. Francis before now and will enjoy reading about this place.

As ackworth born said, there is just something special about Lighthouses. :)
