At the time of their retirement and move to a home in East Falmouth, the keeper’s wife, Charlotte Hindley, said that the couple’s years at lighthouses were “very uneventful.” She observed, “People always try to romanticize it.” She said that after so many years of learning to talk between foghorn blasts, it would be hard to sleep without the sound.

She was right,Hank it has to be boring, but lighthouses are so beautiful to see they become romantic. Very nice frame. Cheers, Dany

Hi Dany and mayaamon. Lighthouses also make an excellent trail to follow when you're new ato a place...you get to see the whole countryside just following the coastal trail.
