On Sat. we had the ribbon cutting to celebrate all the restorations that had been done to the lighthouse. We received a grant from Historic Preservation a few years ago. The lighthouse is well on it's way to appearing just as it did in the 1930's. This is the first lighthouse that was built on Puget Sound. It was built in 1879. It is truly a little historic gem. The SBA(Super Blogging Assistant-he loads the photos) and I volunteer as docents 1 day every month from April to Oct. Sat. was our day for May. Between the celebration and the nearly perfect weather, we had quite a crowd, about 217 people. We tell as much of the history as our guests want to hear!! It's lots of fun and you meet very nice people. We took a short break between the ceremony and our duty time to go to a local plant nursery called Dragonfly. This year they have added a little espresso stand. Of course. I had to come home with a few plants. I'll show them tomorrow.
Just before the ribbon cutting
The flags were so pretty with that lovely blue sky.
The new espresso stand has a growing roof!!
All the glorious plants!
The SBA needs to fortify himself for the tour at the lighthouse!
