I’m blessed to have people in my life who are thoughtful enough to indulge my love of lighthouses. Through the years, I have received replicas of lighthouses, a lighthouse picture now hanging on a wall at home, and other gifts representing my fascination with these aids to navigation.
Today, a co-worker presented me with a magnificent picture of Montauk Lighthouse in Long Island, New York. Montauk was authorized in 1792, by the Second Congress under President George Washington. Immediately, I knew that I had to add Montauk to my list of lighthouses that I want to visit.

Last year, another co-worker presented me with a specially made lighthouse pillow featuring lighthouses in Bermuda, Nova Scotia, and other locations.
