As I stared up at the circular structure in front of me, a question formed in my mind as to why most lighthouses are painted in red & white stripes. It's not as if a ship's Captain is going to be able to see it at night, or was the paint used, a bargain special price if they bought x amount of litres for every lighthouse around the country. no matter the answer, the stripped paint is easily identified from a distance in the daylight at least, as to what this maritime safety structure is. All lighthouses in New Zealand are now fully automated. There is no such thing as a lighthouse keeper in the sense of yesteryear gone. I did often wonder though, what a lighthouse keeper actually did to whittle away time in their job, when not polishing the glass or checking the light bulb.
