This unique lighthouse is a symbol of hope, strength and a warning
to stay focused on your path.
In the years 2010 this light house turned 135 years old and she is
still shedding her light out across the sea.
According to the Department of the Interior's Bureau of Land Management,The lighthouse was first lit on February 15, 1875. In the fall of
2001, the Bureau of Land Management assumed management of the the Light Station and tremendous progress has been achieved in
restoring the light station and grounds. The Light Station
has been congressionally designated an Outstanding Natural Area within
the National Landscape Conservation System."
Today the light station is managed by the bureau and it is an excellent
way to spent a day on the Central Coast of California.
We have passed by the lighthouse many times but I am sad to say that as
of today we have not taken the tour. We have heard great things
about the tour but we have not had time to take the tour. We plan
on visiting the light station very soon.
