Weekly Photo Challenge: Hope

North Head Lighthouse, 23" x 18"

Hope can be defined as looking forward to someone or something with desire and confidence, or a person or thing in which these expectations are centered. Since we are sailors, a lighthouse seems an appropriate expression of hope – the safe arrival into the harbor and the avoidance of danger on the rocks.

This is North Head Lighthouse at Cape Disappointment, WA at the mouth of the Columbia River.  My son was stationed there while in the Coast Guard, and often went out to rescue boats that had gone awry in the treacherous waters created by the outflow of the river over a shifting sand bar.
