Postcrossing 10!

This postcard comes from Australia!!  This is my first postcard from Australia.  Hopefully not my last.  On the back of the postcard Christine wrote some info about the lighthouse pictured (top right).  The lighthouse is run by the coastal patrol which is run by volunteers.  It is a old building (for Australia) and the lighthouse keeper lived there.  The angled room on the left is actually where the lighthouse is.  The windows were built at special angles so when the light hit a metal disk it reflected the light out the windows.
