Wellington region, New Zealand.
A grand old lady of a lighthouse cast iron Cape Palliser lighthouse has stood on the cliffs here since 1897 - and she's still shining strong. Climb the 253 steps to see her up close. Spare a thought for the early lighthouse keepers who had to haul oil and kerosene cans up a dirt track before the steps went in!

That's a beauty, Jillian.

She's a beautiy all right! I used to live on Vancouver Island. My family would drive over to the Pacific Ocean on weekends and swim and have a picnic lunch. Thanks for your post JillianB.

This is a lot larger than it looks. I see the person standing by the doorway and it dwarfs that person. Great lighthouse. Thanks Jill. dj

I'd let all those stairs pass me by too ☺

JillianB

Thank you Mr Ambassador, you are a bright spark yourself :-)

Lol a big wick indeed. Do know that the original fresnel lens is still being used. Changed from oil to diesel in 1954, then to electricity in 1967. Thanks for stopping by Fingerbreaker

Kerosene? There must have been a big wick on the lamp for the light to be seen out to sea.
