I like lighthouses. A lot. So when Friday morning was sunny and yet wonderfully cool, I decided to spend it out at the lighthouse.
There was a sign at the park visitor center saying there were tours of the lighthouse that day. But when I got out there it was locked up tight. Bummer!!
But it was still pretty to look at. It would have been a great place to live and I imagine the view from up there is spectacular.
Since I couldn’t get near the lighthouse I decided to walk around it. I followed the fence towards the beach and saw this sign…
Uff-da! However, in looking around I saw that was the ONLY sign stating this. And it was not visible from the beach. So I decided to take my chances – like the few other people walking along the beach.
Strolling through the sand dunes was very peaceful. By this time I was the only person out there. What a treat to have it all to myself.
Wildflowers were everywhere, many I had never seen before. Just beautiful!
As I reached the beach and its pile of driftwood, I had this view of the lighthouse.
I ambled along enjoying my time there and all the amazing things to be seen… like this piece of kelp.
It was a nice walk. The sea on one side and flower-covered dunes on the other. And I had it all to myself. Well, I did have one visitor as I sat on a huge driftwood log. He was quite a character.
But that’s another story…
