Where Is the Tallest Lighthouse? Wonder #846 Jan. 26, 2013
So where is the tallest lighthouse? That might seem like an easy question, but there’s actually some controversy about what should be considered a lighthouse. For example, some tall structures incorporate lights that can be used as beacons for navigation.
Jeddah Light in Saudi Arabia stands 436 feet tall and has a credible claim as the tallest lighthouse in the world. Other challengers include the 348-foot-tall Yokohama Marine Tower in Japan and the 352-foot-tall Perry Memorial Monument in Ohio. Neither the Yokohama Marine Tower nor the Perry Memorial Monument, however, were built for the specific purpose of being a traditional lighthouse, so some dispute their claims. . . . more

The event was that surfer Garrett McNamara was trying to break/breaking the world record for surfing the highest wave on January 29, 2013. But look, it is a picture of a lighthouse too! Everything is real. Here is a photo of the actual lighthouse from InMyViewPhotography.com.
What a unique item to add to your garden! Order me one too! 😛 This fountain is 33.25″ tall and 14.5″ wide (84.5 x 36.8 cms) and made of resin for your outdoor pleasure. The description says it includes UL rated pump with adjustable water flow. One review says:
