Pigeon Point Lighthouse news update:

After six years, the California State Parks Foundation has started a $6 million fundraising campaign to restore and re-open Pigeon Point Lighthouse. The maintenance of Lighthouse has been neglected since the original First Order Fresnel lens was replaced by an automated DCB-24 Aerobeacon in 1974.

Time is running out before Lighthouse Levitation may be required to support the weight of the 8,000-pound First Order Fresnel lens, Lantern Room, and DCB-24 Aerobeacon. Due to the advances in electronic navigation, historic Lighthouse Treasures provide backup to commercial ships according to Senior Chief Michael Ellis, with U.S. Coast Guard’s Aids to Navigation Team in San Francisco. Lighthouses continue to be important navigational guardians for small craft with less sophisticated equipment.

For public safety, the popular Lighthouse Tower at Pigeon Point has been closed since 2001 when major structural damages were revealed after a section of the cornice fell. The hostel and the grounds are open providing picturesque vistas of the rocky coastline.

  7. Hi Hawk,

    Oh My! I think you made my bottlenose blush! 🙂

    I am tickled pink that you can flap by and flip over my lighthouse laughter!

    Due to my fins, the best my body can do is “Drink in Life; And Swim!” 😉

  8. Captain DD, you have been found out.

    I flew by to say thank you for the kind words regarding my haunt. It is rare to find someone that is refreshing and not a general stick in the mud. Believe you me, I’ve been in some mud and it ain’t no fun.

    I am fan already of your beacon of illumination and whimsical personal humor. It does the heart good to meet folk such as your self that makes me grin like a Cheshire Cat.

    Flapping…flapping…lift-off…and now soaring.

    As I prepare to fade in the distance, please remember the following: “Drink In Life; And Soar!”
