Whew! I can’t believe it’s exactly been a month since I last blog for this page. Been a crazy, busy month, I must say. Thanks heaven, I’m back and since today is Friday, here’s making way for Skywatch Friday.
Below is a lighthouse of the Davao City International Airport - Photo taken during my last air travel in November when we landed Davao airport from Manila.
Trivia:Ancient Roman lighthouses are among the best
preserved and best known examples of lighthouses from Ancient History. A famous
example is the Tower of Hercules in A Coruña, Spain, and there is another at Dover,
England which still stands to about half its original height. It must be
remarked that lighthouses existed since the Hellenistic period, but it is
mainly the Roman ones which have survived. One of the oldest lighthouses in
North America must be El Castillo in Tulum in Mexico. This aid to navigation
guided ancient Mayan mariners from the Caribbean Sea through a dangerous reef
passage and probably dates from the 13th century. (Source)
