Barrack Point revisited

On the ferry back from Clear Island, I was delighted that the pilot decided to do the ocean-side route, rounding Sherkin Island before entering Baltimore Harbour via the twin pinnacles of Sherkin Island Lighthouse and Baltimore Beacon (above)
 Sherkin Island Light (also called Barrack Point, though not after the President) was built in 1885. Last year, I got a good view of it from Baltimore Beacon. These pictures are from another perspective - the boat chugging through the gap between the headlands.
