Luray, KS - United States

Hi Edward - My name is Lynne Wright, and you may remember my husband Don. This is just a wonderful shot of a wonderful light house. It's such a heartache to see these old, history filled lighthouses be set aside for modern technology. I have a favor to ask of you. I'm a painter in oils and watercolors, and I'm a freak for all things ocean related, and lighthouses are right at the top of my piles of love. I would like to ask you for permission to paint this old beauty one of these days. If you were to allow me to do it, it would be some time out, as I'm pretty much up to my neck right now. I would change the sky, and whatever else so that it would be plain I wasn't trying to infringe on your great original. Thanks for your time and consideration Edward. God bless, Lynne

A lighthouse lover's dream - Prince Edward Island has more than 50 lighthouses! Some are now private residences, some are just ornamental, but most are from the time of sea navigation. At present there are seven lighthouses on Prince Edward Island open to the public. The first mode of transportation for early settlers was the sea. Lighthouses were as important to them in their trade and commerce, particularly in shipbuilding, as the railway was after Confederation. Many colonial or "first-generation" lighthouses those built before 1873 are octagonal shaped, and were constructed when timber was abundant in this province. The "second- generation" lighthouses, those built after 1873, are square tapered. Some of the largest timber had to be imported from New Brunswick as the Island timber supply had been depleted by the shipbuilding industry. Each lighthouse had its individual day markings and distinguishing flash patterns.
