Photo of the Day: Lighthouse Beach Ice Sculpture


There are some really fascinating ice sculptures (made by nature) on the beach out at Mission Point Lighthouse right now. Today’s Photo of the Day is one of those sculptures at the first turn-off on the left past the open space on Center Road. (The second turn-off if you count the tiny one next to the open space.)

It’s super cold out there, made even colder by the wind whipping off of West Bay onto the beach. So if you venture out there, wear multiple layers, thick gloves and boots made for trekking through a couple feet of snow. Well worth the effort, though! So gorgeous.
