Abstract
This lighthouse is a visual anchor from land and sea. Its three concrete towers reach 250 feet tall with a base diameter of 75 feet. Accompanying its rotating spotlight is a central spotlight, lighting the core of the tower vertically and continuing into the sky. Nested 150 feet up the tower is the residence for the lighthouse keeper. Siting at a high elevation along a shear cliff face, the often fog shrouded tower is a strong light signal for voyagers at sea.
