We recently did a walking tour of the Point Sur Lightstation in Big Sur guided by Kathryn, a docent and good friend of Cathleen’s cousin, who explained the history of the Lightsation, which is celebrating 125 years this year. The Point Sur Lighthouse brochure describes it: “Jutting out into the Pacific Ocean from the spectacular Big Sur Coast, the Point Sur Lightstation stands as a silent sentinel to a by-gone era. Point Sur is the only complete turn-of-the-Twentieth Century lightstation open to the public in California, and is on the National Register of Historic Places.”
We climbed to the upper section of the lighthouse and walked around it on the catwalk. The wind up there was dramatically strong. We also walked over to and into several really interesting buildings at the station. I’ll be posting more images from the lighthouse and other structures, as well as of the ocean, over the next few weeks.
