Another recommended book - "Stargazing" by Peter Hill.

It's the memoirs of a 19-year old student who takes a summer job as a relief lighthouse keeper on several Scottish lighthouses in 1974, before automation came along and it's one of my top five favourite books I think.

Amédée Lighthouse, New Caledonia - South Pacific

In 1859, the acting Commandant of New Caledonia, Jean-Marie Saisset, asked the government in Paris to build a lighthouse to help ships navigating into the port of Nouméa(then Fort-de-France), particularly as the colony had been chosen as a new destination for French convicts.
