Picture 203 of 365

I have a fascination with lighthouses. I remember reading "Cheaper by the Dozen" and being envious of people who could live in an old lighthouse. This is St. Simon's lighthouse -- one of the nicest around. I've been to Little River Light and got stuck in the sand, St. George's Light has collapsed, Hatteras, Tybee, Sapelo before it was restored (it was quite a hike to the lighthouse at the time and there was nothing inside but owl pellets.) I love the glimmer and sheen of the Fresnel lenses -- the way the glass refracts the light. There used to be a museum at Fort Morgan on the Gulf with many different Fresnel lenses.
