Awakenings: Beauty of America: Lighthouses

Awakenings: Beauty of America: Lighthouses | In and About the News | Scoop.it

Lighthouses have been the sentinels, the protectors, of shoreline after shoreline for centuries upon centuries. In the beginning, these were not 'houses' at all but instead simply bonfires built on hillsides as beacons to guide ships. Many a seafaring vessel would have crashed upon the rocks had it not been for the angel of light shining through the darkest of night or penetrating the thickest fog. Throughout history, the lighthouse has cast mysterious auras, sometimes romantic and often times echoing a ghostly resonance.

New England has so many beautiful lighthouses ... all up and down the coast.
