Traveling Them Thar Hills

Cape Blanco Pictures

Just a few more pictures from a most beautiful place. We are having such a great time. Life at the lighthouse is very rewarding to us!! Doesn’t matter what Mother Nature sends our way we love it . It changes everyday and Mother Nature repairs what humans do between high and low tides. It’s so amazing to watch, constantly changing!

  1. Beautiful pictures… I always love lighthouses, but I’ve actually never managed to get inside of one of these mysterious and majestic buildings… 😀 Hope I’ll be able to change that during this semester’s break… 🙂

    • Yes they are everything you have mention. Cape Blanco is one to be seen. People are most definitely amazed at the beauty of the Fresnel Lens and the feeling walking up the spiral staircase. So much history. If walls could talk!
