Point Arena Lighthouse

Sandy, Leon, Jennifer, Kaija and I had a great weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area March 12-14 at the Point Arena Lighthouse, about 125 miles north along the coast from San Francisco. We stayed in the living quarters adjacent to the lighthouse. As it turns out, this location was used in the filming of the moving starring Mel Gibson called Forever Young. The gazebo seen in some of the photographs was built for the movie. The lighthouse beacon is not currently operational but should be by the end of the summer. The beach in the photographs is at Manchester State Park, located a few miles north of Point Arena. The funky building near the end of the album is the Sea Ranch Chapel, a non-denominational place of worship located along Highway 1 south of Point Arena.
