Brightly lit distant memory!

Lighthouses fascinate me. Growing up during summers on Pratt's Isle, we were nestled up in the trees and sitting upon rocky crags. To our right we saw Hendrick's Head Light House which guarded Cozy Harbor of West Southport Island.

Several miles out to sea was Sequin Island light which peeped its light on and off every few seconds with a briefly pulsing light.'

I had a dream this past evening of a brightly lit amusement park next to a lighthouse and I was impressed by the brightly lit colors that were present in the background.l

A book recommendation: Ahab's Wife or The Stargazer: a novel by Sena Jeter Naslund. I'm about 1/3 into the book and she spends a few years living with a lighthouse keeper uncle. Fabulous story so far.
