A lighthouse is beautiful in its aesthetic and purpose. It’s an atmosphere filled with adventure, hard work, and altruism. Altruism is not a word I thought of on my own, but it’s a perfectly fitting description used by George Bernard Shaw, which was posted in the lighthouse keeper assistant’s quarters. People sacrificed their time and lives to keep others safe.
This location of Point Loma Lighthouse was chosen for its high elevation assuming that it would be an ideal spot for a lighthouse. Only thing was that the fog would cover the light making it hard for ships to see. One remedy was lighthouse keepers warning ships with gunfire. (still dangerous) After 36 years in operation, they closed this lighthouse and moved it to a lower elevation.
This historic atmosphere takes you back to life in a different century. A great place to imagine and to appreciate history, life, and the hearts of people.
