Today is National Lighthouse Day. And as I do this time every year, I like to reflect on the lighthouse experiences I’ve had thus far. And scroll through my library of lighthouse photos and videos I’ve taken.
Tonight, I’ve been revisiting pictures I took on September 19, 2015, during a boat cruise of 10 lighthouses along the Chesapeake in Maryland.

As I’ve looked through these pictures, I was reminded of one timeless truth: lighthouses come in a variety of shapes and sizes. But they’ve all served a common purpose.
It is a lesson that we as humans would do well to remember.

Once again, daughter, this article is very informative and interesting. It would be good to get this information into other media outlets. Not enough is out there about lighthouses; their purpose and the history behind them.
