Tina Shoemaker sent along this photo of the low water levels in front of Mission Point Lighthouse, circa 1998. This is in West Bay in front of the Lighthouse, and that little speck of white is actually THE lighthouse. Amazing!

I mentioned that when the water was low like that, I LOVED walking out the little path on that strip of land in front of the Lighthouse. I don’t know how far it was, but definitely quite a ways into the bay. Quarter of a mile? Half a mile?

Then you’d turn back and look at the Lighthouse, and it’s like you’re in another world out there. Like a fairy tale. Super cool.

Thanks for the photo and memories, Tina!
