A circular visit in the sky

A trip to Plymouth today to visit Smeaton's Tower on the Hoe. Always on our list of local places to visit but we've never got around to it until today.
Smeaton's Tower is, guess what, a lighthouse.

Built between 1756 and 1759, it marked the Eddystone Rocks some 14 miles from Plymouth until it was dismantled in 1882. It was then re-erected on Plymouth Hoe. What can be said about a lighthouse? It's tall, circular and has a light on top.

A circular bedroom needs a circular bed.

 A circular kitchen needs a circular seat.

 A circular store room needs a circular cupboard.

 No shadows cast over this visit!
