Visitors of Battery Point Light (originally Crescent City Lighthouse), northern California, have to cross a tide pool to get there, which is quite a bit of adventure. The lighthouse is built on an isthmus, and it is only accessible during low tide; during high tide, the isthmus becomes an island.
Extreme caution must be used when crossing the two hundred feet between the mainland and island. At any time wave action may cover the crossing area and sneaker waves can threaten visitors standing on or near the rocks and the shore of Battery Point Island.
It's not surprising that great stories about the Lighthouse and Native American legends about the Island have been crafted over time, and that lots of ghost stories are connected to the light.
