Shift change at lighthouse near the French coast

Published on August 24, 2015 by elr08042015

You must be a bit crazy to have a job like that. Guards at a French lighthouse near the coast have a tough life, changing shifts is a risky business there. The lighthouse is called ‘La Jument’ and it’s located off the shores of Finistère, near the island of Ouessant. Apparently, the operation of the lighthouse has been automated since 1989 and requires no personnel, which also means, that the crazy shifts are over.
