South African Lighthouse No. 19


A Stubby Little Zebra


The Cape St Lucia Lighthouse is even shorter than Great Fish Point's, but having been built on a hill means that at just 8 metres tall it still gets the job done.

I know you can find the Jolly Rubino shipwreck close by, but remember - that wasn't the lighthouse's fault, it was all because of a fire onboard.

For me, what is most notable of this little lighthouse, is the fact that it was the only one in South Africa where a female lighthouse keeper was ever employed (Mrs Coward, 1942 - 1946).
