ABC Wed R3 : the letter "L"




L is for
Lighthouse





This is the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse in Burgos, Ilocos Norte, Philippines

Its the highest Lighthouse in the Philippines.Solar powered and funded by the local government.



Situated on top of the hill, It has about 230 steps from ground to its bulb. When you reached the top,you can see the sea to the west and the mountains to the east. its breeze is so cool and the scene is breathtaking.



to get there:

proceed to
Laoag, Ilocos Norte by bus or plane from Manila;
then by bus to Pagudpod, just ask the conductor to drop you on the site;
then walk on the hill, thus renting a van will be the best idea

All photos herein are captured using Kodak KE85
at Burgos, Ilocos Norte, Philippines last 13 April 2008
and digitized using Canon CanoScan Lide25

I love lighthouses. We traveled to Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia a few years ago. I love the lighthouse there.

This seems to be a wonderful and special lighthouse for sure! We just don't have them here in the mountains but I would love to visit one... perhaps one day I will.

Great "L"--I love lighthouses--and the shores they stand over.

Solar powered - that's good. Ours is electric but we don't really have enough sun for it to be reliable!

Lighthouses are so attractive, aren't they? Interestingly so, since they're a warning to keep away!
