leave a light on for me
taking a picture of the light proved to be a challenge the space wasn't very big so this is the best of my shots. the light stays on 24/7 and you can see a bit of that in the picture.
the lighthouse is manned by volunteers that pay for the privilege of staying on the station for one week at a time. but what a great vacation that would make. while we were there a family with 2 kids and the grandparents and an au pare were staying there. they give tours of the lighthouse and explain the history and do some cleaning type work around the lighthouse as part of their tour of duty.
this is the living quarters you stay in while there:

i was amused one of the little girls had a shirt on that said "i'm a keep" I thought that was too cute.
