Halfway up the coast of Western Australia is Exmouth Gulf.
A sharp point where the coast stops heading North and turns North-East.
About halfway up that little point is a small promontery named Point Vlaming after one of the early Dutch explorers.
It was considered a little dangerous to shipping and o a lighhouse was erected.
On the landward side of the point is a large semi-sheltered bay (Exmouth Gulf), now the source of many of Western Australia’s prawns (The giant shrimps)
During WW2 this was a staging post for the Allied navies and the steel structure in the forground was a radar. The sign explains what happened.
Do you have a lighthouse to share?
Post it on your blog then tell us about it, for all lighthouses have a story to tell, in the comments below.
Next week the subject will be; “TOMATO”. Bush, fruit, cooked or raw.
