    CAPF2005, thanks for pictures. I can feel my watch is in good hands.

    The third Volvo in this thread... just terrific. Is there going to be a fourth one?

    Cheers, Piowa

    Frogster at Farol da Barra. Let the story:

    In the seventeenth century, the port of Salvador was one of the busiest and most important of the continent, and it was necessary to help the vessels that arrived at the Bay of All Saints in search of Brazil wood and other wood-in-law, sugar, cotton, tobacco and other items, to supply the European consumer market.

    At the end of that century, after the tragic sinking of the Galleon Blessed Sacrament captaincy of the General Company of Brazil fleet of Commerce, in front sandbar at the mouth of the Red River, May 5, 1668, the Forte de Santo Antonio da Barra was rebuilt from 1696, during the General Administration of John of Lancaster (1694-1702), been receiving a beacon - a square tower topped by a bronze glazed lantern, powered whale oil - according to the Institute Geographic and History of Bahia, the first in Brazil and the oldest of the Continent (1698), when it began to be called Lookout Bar or Farol da Barra.

    The logbook of the English buccaneer William Dampier in 1699, reports: "The entrance to the Bay of All Saints is defended by the impressive Fort St. Anthony, whose lit and hanging lanterns to guide the ships we saw in the night."

    Decree Regencial of July 6, 1832 ordered the installation of a more modern lighthouse, manufactured in England, to replace the old. At the end of the works, opened in December 2, 1839, the new equipment catoptric light stood on one frustoconical tower of masonry, with a range eighteen nautical miles in clear weather.

    In 1937, the old system "Barbier" (incandescent kerosene) lighting was replaced by electric light, is celebrating the first centenary lighthouse on 2 December 1939. Today the lighthouse is enshrined as one of the capital of icons Bahia, inspiring artists and poets...

    Thanks a lot, CAPF2005. I envy my watch having vacation in the middle of European Vorfrühling (early Spring).
