Part IV: Gandiol's Light House

following this voyage, we stopped at the lighthouse at Gandiol
While no longer functional, it stands guard over the Langue de Barbarie

we climbed the stairs to the top

where I finally admitted to myself that I absolutely love love love light houses
[the strip of land is the Langue de Barbie]

we took this view of the northern coast of Senegal on the right and the Langue de Barbie on the left, 
home of Senegal's most famous national park - a haven for bird watchers

the climb down the light house's stairs emphasized its state of disrepair
with its countless remnants left by birds flying overhead
