Me on the front porch of the East House at Point Cabrillo Light Station waiting for our guests.
Today Dad wanted to go to PC to take a picture of the light, why he wanted to take a picture of a light that is off is weird to me, kind of like humans only going potty in certain places. Anyway, I agreed to go along as I always enjoy the walk to the light station and it was such a nice day today. Here is a pic of the light not working, try not to get too excited:
A non-working light station light, Wow
I told Dad that I was worried that the light was not working and he told me the Coast Guard would take care of it. I really like the Coast Guard folks so I believed Dad (Dillon mostly likes Coast Guard staff because they wear uniforms, but I digress). Well we got closer and I realized that the light was just taking a nap and wasn’t really dead or anything and I was so happy! Look at the picture and you will see what I mean.
See, they put a blanket on it so it would be warm while it naps.
It must be very tired, it has been going around and around for a long time! I will let you know when it wakes up and starts turning again.
That was not all about today that was so neat. When we got to the light station our friend Robert was there, telling stories to visitors as usual. I really like Robert a lot and always enjoy seeing him but I do get tired of listening (Robert has many interesting stories and is great to listen to but Dillon generally gets bored after about 5 words from anyone, including me). AND guess what, we saw whales today! Dad and Robert said they were humpback whales. We also a bunch of Harbor Seals sleeping on the rocks like they always do.
See the whale in the right hand corner
Harbor Seals are ALWAYS sleeping it seems to me, even more than I do
OK, well I am kind of tired now so I am going to take a nap, hope you liked my blog today and are as happy as I am that the light is only taking a nap and has not left us forever.
Thanks for reading my blog,
