August 7th is National Lighthouse Day. Let's celebrate by posting 3 images of lighthouses on our partner's profile. Below is an excerpt from a website if you want more information on this enlightening holiday.
"Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always observed on August 7
National Lighthouse Day honors and commemorates a beacon of light that symbolizes safety and security for boats at sea.
On August 7, 1789, through an Act of Congress, the Federal Government took over responsibility for building and operating our nation's lighthouses. The government recognized the importance to ships at sea to find safe harbor during fog and storms. Over the years, lighthouses have saved many ships, and an untold number of lives.
Throughout maritime history, Lighthouses have shined their powerful, sweeping lights through the fog and storms, allowing ships of all kinds to find their way back to port during inclement weather. With the advent of radar and GPS technology, lighthouses have taken a back seat in guiding ships to port. However, they remain the universal symbol of safe harbor to ships and communities that rely upon the sea for their livelihood." (http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/August/lighthouseday.htm)
