Notes:
Phyllis Beer writes: "In 1954-55 I used to play on this beach as we lived in cottage #3 that was within yards/meters of this lighthouse.  I was about ten years old.  The lighthouse had a large red diamond on the side and still had the walkway to the door.  I used to walk around the base of the lighthouse even if the tide was nearly up to the top of the base. Thanks for the memories."
