Colaba lighthouse

Last weekend I had the opportunity to join a bunch of 200-odd people for a walk to Colaba lighthouse which is 2.2 kms from the shore.  
It was a sunny day with extreme low-tide.  We walked over stones,  half-broken concrete walk way and battled lots of Moss to reach the lighthouse.
The walk gives you amazing views of the ships and rigs, mumbai skyline and Arabian sea!  After climbing 168 steps inside the lighthouse we reached the top and took in the amazing views!
It's amazing though that a tiny bulb with a lot of help from huge reflectors is what lights up the lighthouse! 
Overall a fun walk, especially amusing that while at the light house the gps showed or location as in the middle of the ocean!
Enjoy some photos from our walk!
