RACE POINT LIGHT

A great series showing what hard work by volunteers can accomplish.
Bill was involved with a lighthouse organization that saved this light. Him and a friend started the restoration in 1995. They opened it up that week for the general public to see. Gave rides back and fourth over the 2 miles of beach to get out there in a donated 4x4 jeep.
The restoration was completed in 1998 and then opened for over night stays.

GRAY HARBOR LIGHT
Grays Harbor Light is located outside of Westport, Washington. Construction was completed in 1898 and Richard adds ... originally it was located close to the beach and that's where we were looking for it. We couldn't find it. When all else fails, ask the locals. We were directed right to it. As it turns out, storms over the years caused the coastline to change and it wound up about 3/4 of mile from the water's edge.(RL)
