and so, after a CRAZY day of a huge wrong turn, late in the afternoon we eventually ended up at the pensacola lighthouse, which is located on the pensacola naval air station; home of the "blue angels," also known as the "cradle of naval aviation." it's a beautiful base, and i was so happy to see that the lighthouse was OPEN when we arrived....on the few visits i had made there before, it had never been open! i was SO EXCITED!!! ethan, of course, knew all this already...he'd done his research....
|and they keep going, up and up and up.....|
|aw, the history....if these walls could talk....|
|me and my older guys!|
|an awesome shaddow!|
|a beautiful day and a beautiful view....|
tim sat in the van while wyatt napped.....and then he and ethan climbed the lighthouse together as well! i had not climbed a lighthouse in MANY years..... and my equilibrium is not quite what it used to be....but this reminded me of my great passion for these grand structures..... and what a blessing to share this passion with my boys..... peace......
