TOPIC:  Lighthouses…

Posted:  8/7/2019, 3:55 a.m. EDT


So, Grand Haven, Michigan has been rebuilding the south pier and the south pier lighthouses for a couple of years snow.  The final touches include replacing the cast iron catwalk and the associated lights (and life rings).  The term "Lighthouse" is kind of a misnomer, in that the light houses really aren't all that light. In fact, they're very heavy.  They're built rugged to withstand the pounding waves and wind, so they don't fall over into the water.  I do question if the catwalk is necessary, because who really cares if kats get wet?  Seriously, I think if the kats want to walk from the beach out onto the pier they should expect to get wet, just like the humans.  Besides, wet kats are funny.
