Faithful Beacon

One of the landmarks we're proud of around these parts is the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse. The half mile hike from the old highway down to the station is a delight with vantage points galore, though this particular view is from another bluff just to the south. From the house we just moved into which is next door to the one we've been living in, we can look out the windows and see the rhythmic light flashing around the clock. On a really clear evening, we can look to the south and also see a flash from the Point Arena lighthouse. So glad these beacons are well tended in order to guide our seafaring friends safely home.
