National Lighthouse Day


Take a buoy to lunch.

Itís somehow very fitting (or suspicious) that on a day when Congress goes on a five week vacation, itís suddenly announced that itís National Lighthouse Day. While its not known how many businesses are closed in observance, the US Postal Service will deliver mail as usual (losing another $25 million in the process). The observance may have passed us by had we not been notified by our friends at Arcadia Publishing. They sent a list of their books available on the topic. They have 32 titles on Lighthouses. http://www.arcadiapublishing.com/theme/Lighthouses

For our readers that care to probe the psychology of lighthouse keepers, a very entertaining book of interviews compiled and edited by the Late English author Tony Parker is available from various sellers on Amazon. Eight used copies start at .50 and go up to $4.

For our observance of National Lighthouse Day, weíll be closing shop early to feed seagulls. For our readers, we present a collection of lighthouses by Ken and Yvonne Rudine:

Lake Michigan Lighthouses
  • Lighthouses of Lake Michigan's Shores by Ken Rudine

  • Maine Lighthouses
  • Maine's Easy 18 Lighthouses by Ken Rudine

  • Lake Erie Lighthouses
  • Lake Erie Lighthouses- An Erie Story by Ken Rudine

  • Lighthouse Ghost
    Lighthouse Ghost Stories

  • The Keeper of Seul Choix Point by Ken Rudine


  • The Lightkeeper's Ghost, Old Presque Isle Lighthouse from "A Ghost in my Suitcase" by Mitchel Whitington
