  1. There's just something about a lighthouses.......
    There are lots here on the west coast, though not many are manned anymore. Automation has stripped some of the romance, though I know two lighthouse keepers - imagine!

    1. I agree, there's something about them. Most here are not manned, either. I can't say I know any lighthouse keepers!

  2. I love lighthouses, so much safety in such a harsh climate. To think that there was so much importance in these buildings and now with all the technology, they are seen more as ornaments.

    1. I know, it's kind of sad, isn't it, Chel, that there is no real use for them anymore. Everyone seems to love them, though!

  4. I love lighthouses as much as I do ships, perhaps they both signify heading into the unknown? Nice photos!

  8. Amy, I think you and are were thinking the same thing. This summer I road-tripped down the eastern seaboard and marveled at lighthouse after lighthouse. Plus I definitely look for them elsewhere when I travel. Just yesterday I thought I should do a lighthouse montage. I guess I'll wait a few months! As always, great photos and thanks for linking up with Weekend Travel Inspiration!

  19. I LOVE lighthouses!! Something so whimsical about them - perhaps it's the fact that they are there to guide and protect all those seafaring folks when the rest of the world is asleep. Beautiful images!!
