We’ll be introducing some new features here soon, set to a more regular schedule. We’ll be posting original content on Wednesdays, including “Kate’s Corner,” “Kaptain’s Kolumn,” and more. There will be a weekly roundup of the week’s lighthouse news on Fridays.
And watch for the introduction of a new U.S. Lighthouse Society podcast by early spring! It will be titled “Light Hearted,” and I (Jeremy D’Entremont) will be the host. It will feature interviews with people from all over the U.S. (and beyond) involved with lighthouse history, preservation, the arts, and more. In other words, we’ll focus on anything and everything having to do with lighthouses and our relationship to them. I can’t wait to get started.
In the meantime, wishing everyone a bright and Happy Holiday Season!
