Saturday Live BBC Radio 4

Fi Glover was on air this morning with her usual range of interviews. I found the interview with a lighthouse keeper most interesting. He revealed that they did sewing and other activities when not tending the lamp. Fi queried why they did activities normally associated with ladies. The retired lighthouse keeper explained that the watch on a lighthouse was 24 hours and often colleagues would be sleeping. That meant that you could not have a noisy hobby. He also revealed on a land base lighthouse he built a wooden Victorian rocking horse for his children. Pictured above is Beach Head lighthouse taken by me in 2008. I have a great passion for lighthouses so expect more postings on these magnificent coastal structures in the future. If you fancy a good read get hold of “Travels with my Radio” by Fi Glover ISBN 009188274-5 published by Random House
