This is the Halfmoon Reef Lighthouse
as it stands today.
I came across this little lighthouse in Port Lavaca, Texas.
There are many lighthouses more beautiful,
as I've seen many...
but none any more important.
Each and every lighthouse saved many lives,
no matter how small or in what location.
Halfmoon Reef LH was moved onto land eventually,
but originally in the 1850's it was surrounded by water
in the Matagorda Bay, off the Texas Gulf coast.

It survived hurricanes, Civil War and more.
The main thing that was different about
this little lighthouse was....
it had a red light.
To read why and more interesting things
about Halfmoon Reef Lighthouse,
and many other lighthouses,
What is is about lighthouses?
What draws a person to them?
I think it may be that "they appeal
to our artistic and nostalgic senses",
as Marie Cook once said.
She also said ...
"we are to let our lights so shine".
Savor the Day!
