Today is National Lighthouse Day ! Recognized by Congress on August 7, 1789, lighthouses have been a symbol of safe harbor, guiding ships back to port, helping its crew find their way home. Every time I go out to film or photograph the sea, I am always in awe of the infinite depths of the deep blue waters that cover 70% of this planet. Lighthouses are beacons rising above these mysterious waters. They also serve as reminders that we are at the mercy of the earth — the constant ebb and flow of the powerful oceans — and we must respect and protect it. So, go and visit a lighthouse and enjoy the view!
