Beacons across the bay

The long-retired pier light in Racine, Wisconsin stands as a decorative element of Festival Park on the shore of Lake Michigan. Four miles to the northeast, the Wind Point light casts its beam into the deepening darkness.

There is wisdom in the light. It shows the way to go. When the older generation passes its acquired wisdom to the next, future travelers are assured of safe passage into the harbor.

Shine your light today.

I love the composition of this picture. The TWO lights seem somehow linked. Another wonderful shot.
