Weather is crucial
to both sailors and landlubbers
therefore the keepers of the light
have studied and reported
wind and weather
for more than 150 years

The lighthouse is a meeting place
between sea and land
between nature and culture
between then and now and when
and between you and I

Even lighthouses
have their celebrations
birthdays and memorials
and even a museum likes
to party sometimes

The lighthouse is best seen in the dark
under the rotating beams
you can study the stars
and wake to the sound
of wind and breaking waves
