Well, you better

walk the rest. It's safer.

I believe you. How do I get there?

Down the street,

follow the stream,

then take the steps 'round the cliff.

-Right-o. -You'll see it by the harbor.

Here you are, mate. Here's

my share of the damage.

Goodnight, miss. -Goodnight. -So

long, cook. See you at the funeral.

So long, misery. I'll

be in the front carriage.

Not there, miss. That's the bar.

You're the Bottle and Jug.

Well? -Is this the Bottle and Jug?

YES. -I want a bed.


Nice evening. -Maybe.

[Singing in Welsh]

I tell you that nobody may

visit the lighthouse

without the permission of

Trinity House. Nobody at all.

It is the regulations. Nobody.

Not at all. -But if I was to go -

When I tell you it

is the regulations,

I tell you it is

the regulations.

Don't you understand

me when I speak English?

Name of Higgins,

chief lightkeeper.

Reporting for duty at the

North Stake Lighthouse.

Good evening, lightkeeper.

We have been expecting you.

Now that's off my chest.

Oh, thanks very much.

So he did, did he? -Yes, 50 times

did I tell him he could not go,

but he would stand there

and argue. -Funny, ain't it?

You know, there's

lots of folks like him.

They think there's something

romantic about lighthouses.

Romantic. A couple of months out there

in winter weather, that would learn him.

Pork and beans, pork and beans.

And you're lucky if

you find the pork.

By the way, where is

this here lighthouse?

Marked in the chart. -Over there?

I see. Half a mile from

the shore around the inland.

So if I got a bit of skirt in

the village I can't wave to her.

Mr. Owen,


What about a boat to the lighthouse?

-My brother Griffith will take us over.

The boat is ready. It is the

others we are waiting for.
