We’ll Leave the Light On for You

“The public remains fascinated by the evocative beacons, which are popular tourist attractions, beloved local landmarks and the subject of countless photographers and artists, standing lonely but strong against tides and storms, day and night and flashing life-saving beams of light whatever the weather.” But these days, thanks to GPS, lighthouses aren’t as necessary for safety. That means, you can probably have one if you agree to take care of it. US to give away free lighthouses as GPS makes them unnecessary. (This kind of upkeep isn’t for me. I can barely change a lightbulb, much less a lighthouse. Shoutout to my middle school teacher Ralph Shanks, author of the 1978 book, Lighthouses and Lifeboats on the Redwood Coast.)
