The Lighthouse at Shelley Point

Part of our summer holidays was spent on the West Coast. It delivers the type of holiday where days are filled with walks on long stretches of beach, watching whales, dolphins and seals from the patio and counting the passing ships on the still ocean.

Within walking distance was the Shelly Point Lighthouse. I read somewhere that when the area was bought for development, the owner, who was a very keen Lighthouse enthusiast, decided to build one. After it was privately built, it later became an official lighthouse.

We took a stroll one morning hunting for pretty beach pebbles and shells on the sands of the lovely Shelly Bay Beach towards the lighthouse…
