Lighthouses in the desert?


This isn't a normal post for me, but I got to thinking...
One time, Soundbounder made a fun comment about a lighthouse we have in our backyard.

Yes, we live in the middle of Arizona... but we love lighthouses. All of our backyard lighthouses are solar lights. At night, they make wonderful gentle lighting throughout the patio...

Light houses aren't typical here in the desert. But since we are fascinated by their scenery and settings, our vacations often include stops at lighthouses. Last summer, when E. was working in Seattle, he mapped out local lighthouses and visited them. I am jealous of his photos!

So, Soundbounder, here are a few of the lighthouses in our backyard.



Okay, enough of this. On to loftier subjects, I hope!

These are beautiful lighthouses! I also love lighthouses as I was raised near the ocean. I'm sure the soft lighting is wonderful at night; what a great idea.

I miss the lighthouses... I grew up on the coast, too. I always felt like they had a special mystery to them.

I connected through another blog.
In a fun way these remind me of a minature golf course. They have a childlike feel to them but look great in an adult setting too. I like them.

I think these are great...and even more so that they're in your backyard. Very whimsical...and a great conversation starter.

To return the favor, I am going to put a cactus down at the fishing docks.;)
