Saving Sailors: A famous lighthouse on the east coast of Canada attracts tourist attention. In the province of Nova Scotia, Peggy’s Point Lighthouse was originally built in 1868 and rebuilt in 1915. The red and white structure measures 15 metres (50 ft.) high and is located on a granite outcrop of rock at the entrance of St. Margaret’s Bay in the fishing village of Peggy’s Cove, about an hour from the province’s capital city of Halifax. This lighthouse is classified in Canada as a Federal Heritage Building.
Billboard Love: Whether or not he ends up finding love, Mark Rofe certainly has a sense of humour. The 30-something single man from Sheffield, England, recently rented a billboard to suggest that interested individuals contact him if they’d like to go on a date. Rofe had tried the usual online dating methods, to no avail. So he paid £425 to advertise on the roadside space, on a busy street in the city of Manchester. The billboard states: “Date Mark. This could be the sign you’ve been waiting for,” followed by his website address.
Red Water: A lake in Chile has red water. Called Laguna Roja (Red Lagoon), it is located near the city of Camarones, in the Arica y Parinacota Region. The temperature of the freshwater is 40° to 50° C (104° to 122° F) because the lake is fed by hot springs. No conclusive evidence explains why the waters are red. It may be because of algae or suspended sediment. The lake’s depth is not known. Laguna Roja is surrounded by treeless hills, mountains, and rocky outcrops, and is one of the country’s hidden gems.
Sand art: Japan is home to The Sand Museum. Located near the Tottori Sand Dunes on the island of Honshu, the open-air museum honours the natural wonder of the dunes. Visitors can view the enormous works of sand sculptors from around the world, with themed exhibitions changing each year. Sculptures might feature mythical figures, religious icons, and depictions of modern literature, such as The Jungle Book. Themes have ranged from “The Czech Republic and Slovakia” to “South America.” The museum closes for a few months between displays so the sculptors can work their magic in sand.
