Mem­o­ries from a Light­house

South African Country Life - - Your Letters -

I found the Light­house 2 Light­house Ladies Walk ar­ti­cle in the July is­sue most in­ter­est­ing. I come from a fam­ily of light­house keep­ers, from the years 1870 to 1974, in­clud­ing my grand­dad, fa­ther, un­cle and my­self.

I was born at Cape Agul­has Light­house in 1954 and my still­born brother is buried at Dan­ger Point Light­house (May, 1961). His grave can be seen near the house we lived in. I lead a group of older hik­ers, many of them strong, fit fe­males, in Ge­orge. I think they might find the light­house walk a nice chal­lenge next year, if they can get in. Thank you for a lovely mag­a­zine. (edited)
