The path along the shore took us towards the ferry dock and behind the lighthouse. That is my cousin on the left with The Investigator trying to keep his hands warm in the wind! Brrr!!
Once the ferry was on its way across the water we headed onto the lighthouse grounds. The lighthouse was built in 1905 and ran on oil until 1927 when it was converted to electric. It is owned by the City of Mukilteo and is still in operation.
In spite of the wind and cold there were lovely signs of the arriving spring, a reminder of that saying, "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb."
By the time we went through the front gate it was time to head for home and a warm cozy fire in the fireplace. We will have to come back for a summer picnic! Meanwhile, I pray each of you and your loved ones are keeping safe and well. Adieu.
