From the AP (photo is an AP photo as well):
Missing Cape Cod Lighthouse Located in California
"Local historians for decades thought the 30-foot tall lighthouse that once overlooked Harbor had been taken down and destroyed in 1925.
Turns out, it had just been moved to the California coast."
The best part? They aren't sure how it got there.
I know how it got there: it swam.
Will somebody PLEASE write the picture book of this lighthouse's journey? I am dreaming of adventures, storms at sea, and the hunt for, well, something. Mine would be written in the peaceful, seeking tone of Shel Silverstein's The Missing Piece. Artwork by Chris Van Allsburg, maybe? There is your story idea for the day.
In other news, while searching for a link for The Missing Piece, I found this, which asserts that the book is "the perfect primer for children on the gender theories of French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan." Hilarious.
Now go write that book.
