Seeking out lighthouses along the coast can be come a destination on its own. I only explored this one, Cape Blanco.. Viewing the stairs spiraling downward, I cannot believe I overcame my fear of heights and climbed all the way to the top, but examining the powerful lens was the reward.
My imagination, like the crashing waves of the sea, stirred up glory stories. My mind created tales of the lighthouse keepers who, at times, braved one hundred mile an hour winds. In my head I sailed with the brave captains who penned the ship's logs and relied on the prism's beam.
