Symbolising AMSA

Sunday 20 October 2013

I follow the @AMSAupdates Twitter feed for news about the Australian Mari­time Safety Authority’s work. These tweets don’t appear every day, but they are usually about something im­por­tant and in­ter­est­ing​—​a search and rescue operation, a lighthouse repair, a medical evacuation, or a training exercise.

It’s good to see that AMSA has chosen my old fa­vour­ite, the North Reef lighthouse, as the icon for this feed. The re­cent­ly conserved lighthouse also appears in the background of the web page.
