    Lighthouse Love

    I suppose my love of lighthouses goes back to childhood summer vacations.  For years we would go camping at the Holland State Park.  The lighthouse, affectionately known as "Big Red", sat just across the channel from the park.  Many a night I would lie in...

    Oh, the Mystery

    I love lighthouses. A large portion of my home is covered with them. They welcome me home after a long day, just as they use to welcome home the ships that followed their signal. As a child I regularly saw them. I remember sitting on the sand and looking at the lighthouse. I...

    A Beacon of Hope

    Lighthouses to me represent "Hope".....that light in the darkness and the storm helping you find your way back home.  Thorough the trials of life many give up their hope but it has always been a constant in my life, always searching through...

    Calm Round House

    Driving along the coast something about them is just calming.  A beacon in the darkness.  A haven to those on water.  If I didn't live in the house I live in now, I would love to live in an old lighthouse.

    Romance At the Lighthouse...

    There's something about lighthouses that has always intrigued me. There's something safe about them, keepers of the water and crew. Their guiding light, so faithful and true, always there, always beckoning, like a lover's hand reaching out and asking. I have dreamed of...

    I Don't Know Why I Connected To Lighthouses So Quickly.

    Before I went to New London Ledge Lighthouse, I didn't even know what a lighthouse was. I was in fifth grade and we went to a Haunted Lighthouse located in New London CT. My icon is an image of the light. As soon as I went there, some how I connected to the lighthouse and always...

    Stuck On the Coast

    Just standing on the rock over there, with that beacon going around and around. It's lovely. I've always been fascinated by them, and I've yet to set foot in one. I know I eventually will, someday. For now I'm stuck on the coast looking at them...

    I have traveled to several places to see beautiful lighthouses. The Outter Banks in North Carolina have some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. But, I have to say that my trip to Virginia Beach, VA with my husband on our honeymoon was the greatest experience ever. We saw...

    I Dreamt Of A Lighthouse

    Lighthouses mean security and guidance to me. They represent HOPE in the deepest and darkest hour and a LIGHT that will shine to show me the way. I love that sit stately upon a rocky cliff and warn ships of impending doom if they proceed too closely. They shine their light and...

    When I Was In College...

    there was a beach with a lighthouse nearby. At the beginning of the year we had a fun bonfire there. It was always a great place to bond. I went there a few times just walking along the shoreline. Loved the sand and waves. The lighthouse was gorgeous at night. One time a male...

    Ihave Always Loved Lighthouses

    Since I was a child. Growing up on Long Island, there were always the Fire Island Lighthouse and Montauk Lighthouse plus other small ones around the island to include the Statue of Liberty (which, btw is considered a lighthouse!). Then there were the lighthouses on the Jersey...
