Fire Island Light

I love lighthouses, but I have seen few up close and personal.  Photos will do, though.  I loved this stone house attached to the light.  Lighthouses remind me of one of my favorite books:  Anne's House of Dreams, the fifth book in the Anne of Green Gables series.  Captain Jim is the lightkeeper and he is such a character.  If you have not read it, please do, you will love it.

"As the dusk deepened, the great beacon cut swathes of light through it, sweeping in a circle over the fields and the harbor, the sandbar and the gulf.  'I feel as if it might catch me and whisk me leagues out to sea,' said Anne, as one drenched them with radiance; and she felt rather relieved when they got so near the Point that they were inside the range of those dazzling, recurrent flashes."

Have you visited many lighthouses?  Do you have a favorite?  Do you like the Anne books?  Do you have a favorite of those?  Anne's House of Dreams is my favorite, but I love them all.
