Concrete Playground featured some of the most breathtaking light houses in Australia.
“Gone are the days when lighthouses were the domain of lonesome keepers, spending long nights keeping an eye on kerosene lamps and braving the fog and the foam. These days, automation does all the work. But despite that, it’s hard to spend time at one without feeling like you’re going back in time 100 years, when adventuring by ship was an extraordinarily risky business. Since 1622, more than 8000 ships have wrecked on the Australian coast, yet only about 2000 have been found. Visit these ten lighthouses in and around Sydney to travel back in time a little, take in some dazzling views, visit some beautiful beaches and perhaps even sleepover in an original light keeper’s cottage.”

“The redesign was the vision of late, great architect Graham Downes. He kept the original nautical memorabilia, and the floor-to-ceiling maps surrounding the interior stairway are subtle, yet astounding. Downes added modern furniture while airing it out and extending the patio so you can drink up views of the San Diego Bay while drinking up a craft beer (32 taps) or mimosa. Those Press Club banquets always featured cold cuts and potato salad; now a revamped menu focuses on, natch, seafood, including a big raw bar selection.”

Ellines.com meantime featured wondrous lighthouses along the coast of Greece.
“One of the most important modern monuments to the World Naval history is the lighthouses. In the Greek lighthouses network there are 120 traditional stone lighthouses, whose construction dates back in the Revolution of 1821. They were designed in order, besides as their function as a light source, to have the appropriate space for the lighthouse keeper and for storing oil. The Greek word for a lighthouse, pháros or fáros (φάρος), is the root for the words for lighthouse in many Western European languages.”
