Pigeon Point Lighthouse

Pigeon Point LighthouseA beautiful picture of a light house.

Once per year at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse they shut down the weak insipid modern (presumably electric) light and switch over the 5 kerosene lamps and lens of the original, as it was 135 years ago… it's really quite a sight. When they fire it up there's really a collective sense of "whoa!" from the audience.
