There is just something about lighthouses that fascinates so many people including me. They are a dying symbol of man's effort to claim the oceans for their own. These monuments protected many a ship seeking safe passage home. Unfortunately many of these historical buildings have been lost to coastal storms and disrepair. I am happy that many communities have adoopted conservation plans to save our historical lighthouses. I am doing my part in documenting the lighthouses where ever my travels lead me.
