Photo of the Day: Nov. 24, 2015 – Lighthouse Beach and That Time My Husband Jumped Off the Bouy

Lighthouse Beach | Jane Boursaw Photo

Here’s another photo from my Lighthouse excursion the other day. This was taken at the first turn-off on the left past that open space where you can see West Bay as you head out towards the Old Mission Lighthouse.

If you look closely, you can see the buoy in the distance in the upper right part of the photo. My husband jumped off the top of that buoy once in his younger days. He said it’s the dumbest thing he’s ever done, and looking back, he’s surprised he survived. But it was worth it because his friend Joe Curths chickened out (and that’s saying something because there were few risks that Joe wouldn’t take!).
