Wordless Wednesday: Australia's Most Easterly Point

According to Wikipedia, Cape Byron Lighthouse was built in 1901, and it is the last of the great 19th-century Victorian era lighthouses managed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS). It is constructed from concrete blocks and stands on the most easterly point of the Australian mainland.....If you really look hard you can just see the USA (no, not really.....but that didn't stop the girls from trying!!)










For Wordless Wednesday, I'm sharing with My Little Drummer Boys, Sakura Haruka and Tina's pic story
