After our visit to the Latimer Quilt and Textile Center and a quilt shop, GD & I went to visit the Cape Meares Lighthouse. The scenery was awesome!
The parking lot for the lighthouse is above the lighthouse, so on the way down the path, we could see the top of the lighthouse!
Since the lighthouse is on high ground, it doesn't have to be built really tall. I found out that the elevation of the light is the approximately the same as all the other lighthouses and can be seen for about 20 miles out to sea. Lighthouses built at sea level (such as the Pensacola, FL lighthouse) are a lot taller, but the elevation of the light is the same. I never knew (or had thought about) that before.
GD picked some butter cups and took these close-up pictures.
