This huge lens, more than 6 foot high is one that was used in the lighthouse. It is three sided. It is almost exactly the same as the one we have in Flamborough lighthouse. The prisms magnify the light in the center so that the light can be seen many miles away. Each side is like a huge eye.
This cheeky scrub jay thought he owned the place and of course, because I have been up to this light- house quite a number of times, I was more interested in the birds. It was too misty to see any whales.
...and a towhee was pretty active looking for crumbs, I guess. There are many good viewing places from up here to see whales, shipping and great views of the city and the bay. I'm sorry I didn't take any, I wasn't thinking blogs --but if you're in the area it's well worth going up to see.
And far below, us the good old U.S. Coastguard, was keeping watch over us all.
And the drive home was SPECTACULAR!
See you Monday. Going car hunting tomorrow if possible. We are borrowing our son's massive old Cadillac SUV! I don't think I'll be driving that. I can only just about climb in it!
