    Two Lighthouses, Two Hemispheres

    The first time that I saw Cape Palliser Lighthouse in Wairarapa, New Zealand I was taken aback with the number of stairs to get to the top.. This light is perched high upon a rocky ledge overlooking the ocean.
    The second lighthouse is on Assateague Island VA. It is a strong looking structure with 175 steps to the top. You can go out on metal deck and look at the Atlantic Ocean for miles.
    Funny how two structures thousands of miles apart are so very similar... Mariners owe many lives to these lights.
