I have always thought of lighthouses as vigilant, faithful, yet lonely. Theirs is a selfless sort of service and the keeper casting his magnificent light on the sea almost seems like the eye of God when you think of it. Nice thought anyway. Lovely old building. Thank you, Steven.
Peace,
Noellem

I love seeing the lighthouse so close, then backing away to get some perspective on it. It's so graceful.

In the photo on the link it shows electric wired going from the pole to the light house. I always wondered how a light house got its power. These are great photos.

"A quiet kind of care" is a perfect description of a lighthouse. I have missed visiting here. Congratulations on beginning your 54th transit round the sun. I am half way through my 60th. A friend that I have taught with for many years is in PEI right now. Her vacation goal is to get Chef Michael Smith to cook up a dinner for her. Good luck with that. Are you planning a trip to PEI or are you there right now? I've been to PEI a few times. It is very pastoral. Although we need farmlands, I enjoy the woodland trails of Ontario.

Lovely lighthouse. Watched a documentary the other night where they had to move a lighthouse further inland because of coast erosion.

Nice holiday, Steven?

alaine - it was really amazing visiting there. i would live there in a few years if it is possible or appropriate at that juncture. it feels right now but then my needs and abilities may be very different in seven years. steven

This is beautiful. I love lighthouses. We have a few on the Texas coast.

Lighthouses exude and air of wistfulness, longing, quiet splendor. Your photographs capture all of those feelings well.

The light you captured in the photographs of your vacation is so beautiful - very rich and deep.
