Reasons for trip

This is quite easy to find on the point a few hundred yards along the coast from Ricks Cafe. When we got there the gates were closed but not locked, so just let yourself in. The keeper is normally around or in one of the adjacent buildings & will happily open up & give you a tour. Not sure if there is a specific fee but he seemed to be happy with a few dollars. The lighthouse was built in 1894 & inside there are weather records dating back to 1902 (I think). There is also some equipment that shows the transition of the light from gas, to acetylene & then to todays set up using electricity from solar panels. If you make it to the top you will be amazed at how tiny the bulb is that beams out at night. About 100 odd steps which are quite steep & with narrow treads at the top, then you have to crawl out onto the outside platform. The views from the platform (i guess 65 feet) are great). The keeper says the lighthouse is built on a massive tank of water that stabilises the lighthouse in the event of an earthquake (but you don't get to see that). At ground level you can sit under a shady tree & from the point there are often cliff divers, probably the same ones who dive at Ricks. Nice place to spend a hour if you are out this way.
