Point No Point

I saw on the map a place called Point No Point which is at the northern tip of the Kitsap Peninsula, Washington.  With a name like that I was curious and read that it was home to a lighthouse which was built in 1880.  After a 45 minute drive from Bainbridge Island there it was.

Fresnel’s Lens

In 1822 a French Physicist named Augustin Fresnel invented a lens that would make his name commonplace along the seacoasts of Europe and North America. It looked like a giant glass beehive, with a light at the center.  I took a photo of this one that’s on display at Point San Luis Lighthouse, Avila CA
