This is my World

Umpqua Lighthouse:
I wanted to finish up with the light house from last weeks post, which is below this one. Do you see the handles outside the windows ? We were told that they had to go out and clean the windows daily, and with the high winds they would have to hang on to something or get blown off, and that is why they have these handles put on.
If you click on the photo you may be able to read what is posted here, also shows the photo of how they held on while cleaning the glass.

Great shots. Now I want to find a light house to visit. I've seen them in the distance but have never been close to one.

Maintenance is important really. How else will these be preserved for our future generations.

That is definitely not a job for me. I would be really scared hanging out there cleaning the glass. This is my first time at That's My World. I would like to introduce you to my town, Powell River, BC. -- Margy

Thanks for the tour. I'm in love with Oregon and I've been to the lighthouses at Yaquina Bay and Yaquina Head, we passed the Umpqua lighthouse on our way upstate, but didn't stop there. So it's great to get to see it here :)
