Door of Light

My contribution to Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors can be found on the coast of California.  I actually took these photos a few years ago when showing some out of town guests what fun sights and things we have to offer.

I have a ghost door and lighthouse door from the Point Reyes Lighthouse Station.  The lighthouse was actually completed and operational in 1870 after 15 years of delay in the U.S. government’s negotiations to purchase the land.  More information can be found from the Wikipedia posting: LIGHTHOUSE.

This structure has a ghost door or what looks like a narrow door:

The lighthouse door looks remarkably new, probably from the numerous coats of marine paint to protect the wood from the fog and moist sea air.

I understand they were doing some restoration work on the lighthouse station but I haven’t made the trip there recently to see what is happening.  But if you visit northern California try to make it a point to visit this lighthouse if it is open.  You will not regret doing so.

Thank you for visiting my post and thanks again to Norm 2.0 for his creation of the Thursday Doors website that gives us bloggers an outlet to let our thoughts be put on paper or in this case, web space.  For more posts and photos of doors by others please go to: Thursday Doors.

  1. The salty sea air really does a number on the buildings doesn’t it. They are in constant need of maintenance.
    I love that ghost door – great find 🙂
