    Love this scene, so peaceful, and love the lighthouse – beautiful!

  2. Great shot , your perspective makes it look like it’s back on the shore. A mile and a half is a long way…

  3. A “working” lighthouse that far from shore?

  4. Thanks for the history lesson. Who would have thought that shifting waters could cause such a distance?
