From the boat, this is Pelican Point Light House, now a luxury 7 suit Pelican Point Lodge. This is where a light beacon has stood to guide seafarers since 1915.
Two interesting facts about it. Firstly, unlike most lighthouses around the world which are painted red and white, this one is a striking black and white. The reason being that the red blended into the golden sand dunes in the distance, and could not be seen.
The other is that the lighthouse is not situated at the edge of Pelican Point as one would expect. This is because the peninsula, comprising a narrow strip of sand which extends into the sea for about nine kilometres, has grown by almost two kilometres since the beacon was first erected.
It can only be reached on land by 4×4, which I really would like to do one day. Even more so to stay there, if the travel-gods will shine upon me.
