The light

Today we celebrate the original GPS and radar of the high seas.  It’s National Lighthouse Day.   The oldest known lighthouse stood 450 feet and was build between 300 and 280 B.C. in Egypt.  Lighthouses were very important to maritime life and have saved thousands of lives throughout history.  Today most lighthouses are either museums, points of interest or private homes (for someone crazy about stairs).  There are many lighthouse societies across the globe intent on preserving the history and nostalgia of lighthouses.

Celebrate today by visiting a lighthouse, making a lighthouse out of clay, or going to the beach, sticking a flashlight in your mouth, spinning around, and pretending to be a light house.  If you aren’t committed, consider your mission successful.  Have fun and…
