Mouille Point lighthouse

Mouille Point Lighthouse is reputed to be the oldest – working – lighthouse in South Africa. When the mists roll in over the sea, she starts up and her foghorn reverberates across the bay. Insomniacs unkindly refer to her as Moaning Millie.

I happen to find the long, low, slow sound of a foghorn soothing. Some misty nights when there are ships coming into the harbour there is a sort of Do-Re-Mi of multiple foghorns going on. One can hear Millie calling the ships and the ships answering her. Now how many cities can make that claim?
