to the lighthouse

We didn't see any members of the Ramsay family, but otherwise the trip up the Wadjemup lighthouse was amazing.

We saw the rope the keeper had to pull up every three hours to keep it turning, the curved cupboards, the lens and wondered where they kept the cocnut oil.

A bloke operated it until as late as 1990.

There are binoculars so you can have a good squizz from 80m up: we stared, agog, at a Collins submarine chugging past, cyclists and cloud shadows drifting across Narrow Neck.
