We are on a journey, sojourners on this earth. Let us share with you the highs and lows of our lives. Heaven is a sweeter place now that we have two beautiful granddaughters waiting there for us.

The Lighthouse

 We had seen the lighthouse from afar and since I have always loved lighthouses, I convinced Dave that we should check it out.
 It wasn't off the beaten path at all, but the road we followed ended abruptly at a closed gate. There was a path off to the side so we decided it must lead to the lighthouse.
 Before long we caught a glimpse.....
 ...and across the water, the mountains on the American Olympic Peninsula stood out.
 We kept walking and came to another gate, this one open.....
...the long path led down to the water...
 ...and there it was! Amazingly beautiful!
 I was so excited that we had actually found it along this path that wasn't well worn at all.
 The view was spectacular... all directions. It literally took our breath away!
I couldn't help but think that it took some work to get here.  It would have been so easy to just drive on by and miss this magnificent view.  How often in our lives do we miss the spectacular, the magnificent because we are too busy and just drive on by?

Herb and I will have to go back there sometime, just for old times sake.
