Day 153 - Though we did have a storm, it was nothing like what they had up in Portland and Seattle, so we dodged a bullet there.
Day 154 - We stayed here for three nights and viewed the Redwoods and Stout Grove where you take a small road that looks to be one way but is not!
The St. George Lighthouse was built in 1882 and took 10 years to complete. It was the most expensive lighthouse ever built at $700,000! Imagine what that would be in todays money! It was built due to the sinking of the ship Brother Jonathan that was shipwrecked on the nearby rocks with 150 men losing their lives. The lighthouse sits 6 miles out to sea!
The Battery Point Lighthouse sits right by the town. This lighthouse was built on an isthmus and is only accessible during low tide. During high tide, the lighthouse becomes inaccessible. It then becomes the most photographed scene along the America's Wild River Coast.
The marina in this town is very interesting. EVERY boat is launched out by pulley's each night to avoid damage from the strong tides.
