#13 Tuesday’s with David - “Lighthouse at Nugget Point”
David’s Insight on “Lighthouse at Nugget Point”
The lighthouse at nugget point was built in 1870, originally fueled by oil. Nugget Point was named by Captain Cook because the rocks surrounding the point looked like pieces of gold. We left St Clair at 3 am to drive to Nugget Point so that we could capture the stars before sunrise. As it turned out it was a rainy morning which we spent waiting in the car for the weather to clear. We had a brief moment to make the short hike down the trail to the lighthouse between the raindrops and this was the resulting capture. The thick storm clouds remind us of the importance of lighthouses!
