Photo of the Day: Arctic Mission Point Lighthouse Beach


After church yesterday, I stopped out at Mission Point Lighthouse to take a few pics, and holy smokes was it cold.

I trekked out to the beach and stayed for about five minutes – just long enough to grab a few shots of that frigid beach – before heading back to the parking lot. I was bundled up pretty well with several layers and still felt the arctic blast searing through me.

There were a few other brave souls wandering about, including one woman with no hat. I was about to give her mine and shift to my hood, but she and her husband were on their way back to their car.

Still, I love that cold blast of wind and those ocean-like waves, and it really makes you realize how important lighthouses were back in the day when they were the only means of guiding ships to save harbor during storms.
