LIGHTHOUSES I HAVE LOVED
(AND STILL DO!)
From one side of the world to the other....
...and in between...
South Stack, Anglesey, North Wales.
And if you thought I'd get as far as this without mentioning Flamborough, you must be new to my blog!!
So here it comes...
Flamborough boasts not one, but two lighthouses. The one above built in the 1800's and the one below built in the 1600's.
The old lighthouse is built about half a mile inland from the new lighthouse and I lived half way between the two. I must be one of very few people left who have actually been inside the old lighthouse. It's all locked up and out of bounds now. It had old steps that spiraled their way up the wall inside -- no railings. I don't believe I ever went to the top, the steps were too dangerous. But I do remember looking out of one of the windows. Of course there was no electricity, just a bonfire or torch lit on the top as needed.
And here we are, we two sisters in mid-summer not very long ago, in our favorite spot.
Do you know what paradise on earth would be?
