Evelyn Page Retirement Village Manukau Heads Light House

On a December day that started out drizzling, but eventuated into a lovely, clear and calm day, a bus load of residents journeyed along a scenic drive to Manukau Heads Lighthouse.  The views from the Light tower (240 metres above sea level) were magnificent.  Our tour guide gave us a detailed history of the lighthouse, the surrounding landmarks, the infamous Manukau bar and the maritime tragedy of the HMS Orpheus in 1863.
