Now that summer is officially here, it’s time to hit the road to visit your favorite lighthouses. Harbour Lights has chosen some of North America’s most intriguing sentinels for our mid-2003 launch. You’ll want to reserve them for your collection, and add them to your list of vacation destinations!
If you’ve dreamed of being a keeper, we’ve discovered the next best thing! Visit Two Harbors Light near Duluth, Minnesota, and you not only can sleep in an operating light station, but you will also be registered as an Assistant Lighthouse Keeper! We chose this charming sentinel for its midwestern architecture and its unique history. It’s limited to only 5,500 pieces, so order yours right away!
Believe it or not, there’s a Midwestern feel to Alki Point Light in Elliott Bay, Washington. That’s because farmers that settled in the Seattle area in the 1800s came from America’s midsection. This working station sits at a point that is a favorite for daring divers because of its height and depth, so if you’re feeling adventurous, bring along your gear. Meanwhile, add this beautiful new sentinel to your collection and enjoy it in the comfort of home!
If you can brave the fog, you definitely want to add Point Reyes Light to your vacation itinerary. Located in Marin County north of San Francisco, Point Reyes is reputed to be one of the foggiest spots in North America! Its desolate locale made the lighthouse a mental health hazard for its keepers. When you walk the 300 steps down to the site, you’ll understand their feelings of isolation and loneliness! Now part of the Point Reyes National Seashore, this is a destination worth the trip! Until you can see it firsthand, enjoy our authentic new sculpture of this famous beacon. Reserve yours now, because it’s limited to only 4,500 pieces worldwide!
Next month, we’ll visit some of the other Mid-2003 Harbour Lights editions. Till then, contact your Harbour Lights Authorized Dealer and see what’s new!
