my world #43: point reyes lighthouse

21 Sep

If you have been checking out my weekly entry to MY WORLD you would know that I have posted Point Reyes Lighthouse twice before.  So why show it again you asked? Why not I replied?

Seriously, our friends out of town friend was visiting over the Labor Day weekend and she requested them to take her to Point Reyes Lighthouse.  Since our friends haven’t been to the Lighthouse themselves, they invited us to go with them so we could show them and their friend around Point Reyes and the lighthouse.

I was quite surprised to see the winter-like weather on Labor Day, although foggy/misty day was not unexpected. I was very worried that the out of towner (in brown) would be disappointed because of this very thick fog.  As we were walking towards the lighthouse, the coast was covered in fog. I was talking about the beautiful waves and all she can see was fog.

But she flew coast to coast to see the lighthouse and despite the heavy fog, there were a lot of people including some elderly visitors braving the cold strong breeze and thick fog, she went down to take a closer look and snap some photos.  I was happy to see the fog lift after 30 minutes.  As you can see the fog has thinned down.

Want to showcase your world?  MY WORLD is here.

    Interesting post and beautiful shots. I like the ones of the lighthouse but I also love the first one with the trees boughed over with the fog behind the people.

    Ewok: That is a really beautiful place to visit and the weather does look so cold.

    I love that sense of isolation that fog brings to an environment. Great photos.

    The fog gives the photos, and the view, an eerie beauty. It may not have been the classic bright sunny seascape, but it looks to be a wonderful location. I think I’m going to have to add another to my list of places to visit someday.

    Well worth another look! So often one doesn’t go to tourist attractions in one’s own town, unless visitors arrive!

    The beach and the lighthouse are beautiful in the fog. It does look cold for labor day, though.

    I quite like the misty photos – makes it interesting. Claude Monet painted the same thing over and over in different light conditions – why shouldn’t you?

    It’s great to have a landmark to show visitors. That first photo is great.

    Just reading about those steps makes me feel exhausted, I’m glad your friend got to see the view properly though!
