One of the last weeks of summer…..not really, summer to me is from Memorial Day until Labor Day. Remember when school got out on Memorial Day and did not return until after Labor Day? Now school goes back the 1st week of August yuck! So…it was one of the last weeks we had off from school boo hoo. Mr. Fix It’s family is from St. Augustine. We do love going and spending a week at the beach, getting to eat great seafood all week long. Yum!! Each trip we try and do some of the goofy touristy things, there is so much to do there in St. Augustine. This trip our touristy thing we did we loved was the lighthouse okay, okay I am not a light house nut…but this one was so pretty really was and was so well cared for. Me and Mr Fix It decided right then and there hey would it be fun to ride all over this great country and see each and every light house? So, this is one of the many things on our Bucket List.
Some interesting trivia facts about light houses which I did not know cause I guess it was just not in my interest level of useless knowledge ~ wasn’t about food ?
All light house patterns are painted differently so the ships or sailors could tell where they are by individual color or patterns.
The lights they flash around are different too ~ so the sailor there again knows where he is on the map.
Which state has a light house that is not on the coast? Bet cha don’t know this one?
The earliest light in North America was in St. Augustine, Florida, depicted on the map of Boazio, printed in London in 1791. Menendez built the tower after his landing in 1586.
Answers to the trivia question…did you get it??
Well did you!
Kentucky ~ Funny huh was to me….. WHY
Michigan ~ having the most lighthouses 150 ~ they are just on a lake?
Enjoy the rest of your summer…promise I will post food soon!!
