If I was a lighthouse keeper, I might spend the day away dreaming. It's easy to do in this little lighthouse. Pacific Grove California is another one of my favorite spots. Repeated every trip, my family and I go up the tiny wooden steps to the second floor. The window upstairs faces west. The blue pacific reaches beyond the horizon. I love imagining what the lighthouse keepers dreamed about as they looked at the unchanging waters. Since 1855 people like me have walked the narrow steps to view God's glorious creation. The lighthouse contains the simple necessities. It is a good reminder that we really don't need so many things. A good book, pen and paper and a warm fire. Oh, and the sun setting over the pacific everyday. What more could you ask for?
