Well done DonJuanLuis that didn't take you long. Over to you.

The original 20-metre Wadjemup Lighthouse was completed in 1849 and was Western Australia's first stone lighthouse. It was built to provide a safer sailing passage for ships to Fremantle Port and the Swan River Colony.
Wadjemup Lighthouse on Rottnest Island

I am guessing that the Watch Hill lighthouse (posted by Fallard) was in sight of the Americas Cup course off Newport, RI where the Americas cup was successfully defended for about 130 years. Wadjemup Lighthouse would have been in clear sight by the yachts racing for the Cup during its defence in 1983.

Yes, Laggon pond, Vineyard heaven, Martha's Vineyard
BTW if you want a mooring in the pond will have to get in the waiting list, ant the wait could be more than a couple of years!
I really liked this place.

regards...

You are of course correct. (please kick your husband on my behalf)
