Destroyed and abandoned….. Whiteford Point Lighthouse is located off the coast at Whiteford Point near Whiteford Sands, on the Gower Peninsula, south Wales. It is an unusual cast-iron lighthouse built in 1865 to a design by John Bowen (1825–1873) of Llanelli, by the Llanelli Harbour and Burry Navigation Commissioners to mark the shoals of Whiteford Point, replacing an earlier piled structure of 1854, of which nothing remains. It is the only wave-swept cast-iron tower of this size in Britain, athough it can be reached on foot at low tide. Whiteford Lighthouse is listed by Cadw as Grade II* as a rare survival of a wave-swept cast-iron lighthouse in British coastal waters, and an important work of cast-iron architecture and nineteenth-century lighthouse design and construction. It is also a Scheduled Ancient Monument….Deactivated 1926.
It’s Monday morning, September 13th, 2020 @ 12:48 PM CST as I begin to post this 4th edition of Random Things Digest. I hope your weekend was a great one, and that you’re looking forward to a productive week starting tomorrow.
For me, this past week has been extremely busy, busy, busy! I’ve been trying to get my workflow in order with the use of a new (to me) task managing app called Todoist. Long story short, that app so far has not lived up to my expectations so far, but I’m not giving up completely on using it. I did end up giving Google Sheets a try for a very basic task list manager using one of it’s spreadsheet templates. So far I like it I think. I’ve managed to start up a couple of new blogs that I’ll be setting up and adding into my personal network. One is a music blog to track the music I’m listening to on Spotify (something to reference mainly for myself), and the other one is called Bad Ass Trucks, and by the name of it, I’m sure you can guess what it will be about. I’ve gotten a lot of work done on my Kaleidoscope Art Ebook, so it will be coming up in my ebook store on Gumroad. It will be a free ebook, so look for it soon. You can keep up with all of my progress on it at my home page.
