Australia Cape Otway Lighthouse

2 April 2021

OMG it's a lighthouse

Many photo's of the lighthouse at Cape Otway

If you like lighthouse photos, you will like this update, it is all lighthouses.
The lighthouse is the main attraction, but as you shall see there are also Wallabies.
Also there is the Great Ocean Walk, different from the road, as its for walking not driving.
I walked on some of it.

The sunset was very good, it is now dark, the lighthouse is lit up. Ships are safely navigating. Soon I might go and see some stars. Sky stars, not movie stars.

There are at least some other people here in some of the other buildings, but they are far away from me. There is also a story about a guy who crashed his Cesena into the ocean after seeing a UFO. So who knows, I could be attacked by an alien Wallaby hybrid.

And then I found a world war 2 radar station. Turns out Japan flew reconnaissance flights right over here, using the lighthouse for navigation! They quickly built a radar as a result.
