La Goulette Lighthouse, La Goulette, Tunisia
The La Goulette Lighthouse (Tunis Jetee Nord) is located at the end of the jetty on the North side of the entrance to the port at La Goulette, Tunisia, which is a main port area for the adjacent city of Tunis. The age of the current light is not known, but a station was established at this location in 1850. The light is metal and sits atop metal legs. Photos taken in September 2011.
Someone asked me, "What is it you love about lighthouses?'
I guess it is because seeking out lighthouses as a hobby combines so many things that I enjoy: travel, the sea, being outdoors, photography and history.
So, having a lighthouse blog, allows me to share my love of lighthouses with others. Each post will be about a different lighthouse that I have visited and have photographed over the years. I hope you enjoy. I have also started a bird blog for the birds I have photographed (August 1, 2013).
