Well, we're leaving Hawaii behind for now but that trip will live in our memories forever. To keep things fresh on the website, however, I thought it would be fun to go back and revisit some of our favorite subjects and post a few in Gallery 1. No surprise to many who see our travels on Facebook or on this website, lighthouses are indeed a favorite thing to visit and photograph. My plan is that without much commentary, I'll list the lighthouse name and you can just click your way through the 18 that I have selected. We do have a trip coming up where we think we'll capture some new imagery; but when we have a dry spell between trips, we may come back to the "My Favorites" and post something new.
Here are a few fun facts. Image 1-1: Bass Harbor Light is a private residence now. 1-4: Forcu Light is in Nova Scotia. 1-5: This is Hatteras Light in 2011 before it was moved in 2016! 1-6: Coquille was repainted to restore the red. 1-8: Grand Marais artist colony was a frequent haunt of Mimi's Grandmother. 1-9: Can't get there or back in high tide because the water cuts off access. 1-10: Peggy's Cove Light is featured in at least one of the Jesse Stone movies. 1-15: The Sanibel Lighthouse is practically in the Gulf now after Hurricane Ian. Looks much different now but they are rebuilding. 1-16: Can't shoot at sunrise because the gate doesn't open until 8. We got this in the afternoon after first being run out by a rainstorm. 1-18: Two Harbors Light was closed so we got to use the drone for this one.
