    Default Lights and lighthouses quiz

    Looking back through some old photos, I find that I have photographed or visited quite a few lighthouses. For your amusement I have thrown them together as a sort of quiz. They were all taken in the last 40 years during our summer cruises from the East Coast, and we've never sailed to Scotland.

    Some are ridiculously easy, and some a little less so. A case of virtual Champagne to anyone who has actually seen them all.

    Very interesting quiz, well done for putting it together. I don't think the virtual champagne will be heading my way!

    Don't know any except 15, possibly 11 but if I'm right it ain't anywhere near the E Coast. A great post, thanks.

    Oops. Some places appear more than once, as I intended, but No 10 is repeated at 21. I had noticed this and corrected it but evidently not successfully.

    Good quiz..... but at best I can place 6 or 7 so it will be amazing to find someone who can place them all.

    I think I recognise 8 and 15 but only because of the famous background.
    Never having sailed anywhere othe the North Wales I have not idea of the East Coast but it does look interesting.

    We had our own private flying display as the flight circled us before appearing at the Eastbourne Air Show (which may or may not have been nearby!)

    I was sailing near Dover a couple of years ago when a Saga cruise ship was leaving the port. They seem to have an arrangement with one of the Spitfires to came and do a show for them as they sail. We had a very good view of it.
