This week’s photo challenge with the Daily Post is called “Monument.”
Monuments are pretty cool. I like seeing the famous ones, but sometimes, it is the local and the functional that I find really fascinate me.
Maybe because I come from a costal town and maybe because I love being near the water. Maybe because I am practical. But, I think lighthouses are kind of cool when they are still in their natural location and still doing something.
Last Spring, Patrick and I went on a field trip to visit a tourist spot where there is a lighthouse. We discovered it is pretty popular. It was built almost 100 years ago and a lighthouse has been on that spot for almost 150 years. That is pretty old, especially for a lighthouse that gets hammered by wind and sometimes waves day in and out..
