Greece in California

When you see this picture, what is the first thing you think about? Well for me when I took this shot, I thought this is just like Greece. The white fence with the beautiful blue ocean in the background, the bright blue sky.. just as I remembered it from several years back. But no, it isn't Greece, it is at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse with the Pacific Ocean in the background as it looked today. Then there is something else that I noticed here that is remarkable. If you look in detail at the little image here (click on it tot enlarge it) you will see a date above the door saying 1872. Well if you would look at the lighthouse itself (photo on the Front Doors blog), you would see a different date. Interesting isn't it? Now the question is who is right.. The people who made the tourist sign (based on historical data), or the people who built the lighthouse and just put the current year on it. Do you know the answer?

My ex-wife and I went to Pigeon Point several years ago. It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. It's just breath taking.

There's a field of wild fires on the road that leads in. If you go into the field and over a little hill you can get on the beach. It's incredible.

Hopefully I'll get back there soon.

I found you by BlogExplosion, too. :)
