    Such an unusual looking lighthouse Kathy. Home from home. Lovely clear, sharp photo. Well done.

  • thanks it is different, the light keeper house looks the same as this without the light, that is the veranda I was standing on to get this shot

    It’s been really hot here too! A solid week of rain and now we ad steam!!

  • I think it has been hot on the eastern seaboard, the heat doesn;t bother me that much, but it was smokin this day, I went out shooting with friends, it was about 92, heat index of 101, and no sea breeze… I was also complaining how hot it was. lol
