Lighthouses

Stonington Harbour

We took a number of boat tours while on the island. The islands were dotted with lighthouses - all of them automated. Captain Bill told us about one that was more than 30 miles off the coast on an island which measured less than 60 feet long. Apparently during storms the water washes completely over the island. I can't imagine a life lived in such a place!
