"The idea of seeing the sea - of being near it - watching its changes by sunrise, sunset, moonlight, and noonday - in calm, perhaps in storm - fills and satisfies my mind."~ Charlotte Bronte

Often, people will speak of the serenity that they experience visiting lighthouses. I, for one, do not experience the same. I love lighthouses, please do not mistake this. But my personal experience is not of serenity. Rather, the encounter is of assurance.

The weather, the ocean's temperament, near lighthouses is often seen at their worst. The cloud ceiling is lower in the storm. The waves not only crash on the rocks but have enough power to excavate the bottom.

Mariners see lighthouses as excellent navigation bearings. Yet, on the contrary, they are places to avoid. And this is where we find assurance. The people who built this place took the time to warn us. Someone out there is looking out for us.

So, to experience lighthouse areas in their fullness, visit in all conditions. By all means, visit in sunlight. Visit in sunrise, sunset, and noonday. But also understand the time of fog, of the storm, of the tempest. And the combined experiences will bring satisfaction to the mind.
