Our best friends illuminate
What we cannot see
Like beacons in the night
To keep us off the rocks

Honour them
When the sun rises
And their guidance
Is no longer required

They’ll be needed again
When the sun goes down

Pigeon Point Lighthouse
California, United States of America

Taken during travels, 2009

In addition to being a pretty setting, the grounds of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse also provides one of the best hostelling experiences around.
