This time last year we were treated by family to a stay at the assistant lighthouse keeper’s house at North Head Lighthouse in southern Washington near the mouth of the Columbia River. It had been commissioned in 1897 and was manned for the greater part of the twentieth century until the light was automated. It was turned over to the Washington State Parks in 2012 and has been subsequently restored for use by the public.
Rumors abound of ghosts that haunt these grounds but none appeared during our stay, and I think I know why. With a contingent of five kids, their parents and grandparents, the ghosts were afraid of US!
