Well Derek , that white bearded chappy should be traversing the eastern hemisphere now, going from north to south whatever way your up; trust you left some TimTams and VB out for him!

Oh yes the subject of this thread is, I'm sure Ballycotton Lighthouse, Co. Cork. 51 49′ 32.65″ N, 7 59′ 2.97″ W One of only three lighthouses with black towers.

Enjoy the prawns etc.
