It did not take too much encouragement from this group to spend a do-nothing weekend in Rampanalgas (near Toco). There was no television and no newspapers, so it simply meant lazing around, perusing the grounds and plenty of ‘ole’ talk about our various life experiences.
The weekend was going well, swimming and playing in the waters of Balandra and Toco beaches. Then out of the blue, I suggested that we visit the old Lighthouse at Point Galera which my trusty history book had told me was 120 years old. The visit turned out to be a shock of unbelievable proportions.
First thing one notices en route are two single lane bridges, one bridge seems to be very dilapidated and certainly needs a prayer to cross it safely, but 50 yards further you come upon a second bridge, this one is sturdier because it is a Bailey Bridge installed some years ago.
