To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf - Goodreads

Towards the end of September 2012 I flew over to England to give a slide show of my lighthouse photography to the ALK (Association of Lighthouse Keepers) at Devonport in Devon. It was the occasion of their AGM and I was the guest speaker, quite how I got so lucky to do this is beyond me. Anyway while I was a bit nervous of doing the slide show, it went well, in front of some 50 very knowledgeable people on lighthouses. I have always been the first to admit that I am first and foremost a lighthouse photographer, I get my enjoyment from taking pictures of them more than all the technical stuff, so I was a little wary. However my worries were soon swept away by the very nice audience. While I was in England, my first visit there for 21 years, I visited several lighthouses including Eddystone, Start Point, Watchet, Portland Bill and Plymouth Hoe.
