I realize the larger ships have changed their routes and no longer sail by here. Yet at the same time I’ll never forget the day that lighthouse saved my life.
I was out sailing that day and had taken what I thought was a short nap. I woke to the sound of thunder. Storm clouds were rolling in and it was quickly getting dark. The sea was churning and began to toss my diminutive boat to and fro. I needed to get to shore quickly but there was only a small window of opportunity to come ashore on a sandy beach as the area was strewn with large,craggy rocks. There was no way I would be able to safely find my way ashore and the darker it got the greater the odds grew that I would not find safe haven. My anxiety level plummeted when that solitary light from the lighthouse pierced the darkness and gave me a perfect path to guide me safely home.
