This Little Light… has Guided Many

14k Lighthouse Pendant

A light in the distance, a welcoming glow, a beacon in the night… lighthouses can be mesmerizing.  Many travel the world over to see these shore side beauties.  Sometimes planning vacations around a trip to view these in person. Many are on historic registers and some have been painstakingly restored to bring them back to life.


Whether you visit the oceans or great lakes, surely these distance monuments have captured your eye.  If you haven’t made a point to see one in person, perhaps a road trip is in order. Many are open for public viewing and some are even bed and breakfasts where you may stay, such as the Heceta Head light in Oregon.

Heceta Head, Oregon

Pronounced “Ha – SEE – Ta” by most, “HECK – ah – Ta” by others, yet everyone agrees Heceta Head is one of the most beautiful lighthouses in the world. The Heceta Head Lighthouse and Light Keeper’s house are circa 1894. Both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. (Info from http://hecetalighthouse.com)

Guests may actually stay at the Keeper’s house.  So if you are looking for an interesting vacation, lighthouse tours are certainly work considering. Make a few new memories this year… and learn a little history along the way.

Trivia: Where was the first lighthouse in America?

Answer:  (yeah, it’s backwords, grab a mirror to translate, or google it).
