                              The island is Sultan Shoal, which have featured here on CVF many times before.
                              Here it is again, seen from the same side as in the picture above, but without the tug:


                              Different perspectives:




                              The old Light House is still active, but no longer manned: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sultan_Shoal_Lighthouse

                              The living quarters are now rented out as Holiday Chalets to PSA employees and friends.
                              Here is a link to a report from a visit there: http://wondercreation.blogspot.sg/20...tan-shoal.html

                              You could take hundreds of ships pictures from there in a day or two, as well as fishing and exploring the rock pools for all kinds of interesting life forms.

                                That sounds like the perfect vacation spot. Send the wife into town for a spa visit and I'll run laps around the island with my camera.
