Daily Picture - 19

Sorel Lighthouse was built in 1938 and it currently has an alternating red and white flash every 7.5 seconds, warning mariners of the hazards of the north coast of Jersey and the offshore islets such as the Paternosters.
The headland is the most northerly point of the Island and on clear days, such as this afternoon there are great views of the Normandy coast as well as the other islands, including Alderney today.
For those interested in such things the exact location is 49° 15' 36.3" N  2° 9' 32.8" W
