I FOUND THIS LIGHTHOUSE IN WESTERN MARYLAND ON THE WAY TO SEE MY SON. IT IS FULLY FUNCTIONAL AND AN EXACT REPLICA OF ONE FOUND AT PEGGY'S COVE, NOVA SCOTIA.
IT STANDS AT A WORSHIP CENTER OVERLOOKING FOUR LANES OF INTERSTATE TRAFFIC. HUBS PULLED OVER FOR ME TO TAKE THE PHOTO. THERE IS NO SUBSTANTIAL BODY OF WATER WITHIN 100 MILES.

A light unto my soul. :)

Dimple said...

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Ps 119:105 KJV
Blessings!

Stine said...

Peggy's Cove! That's Canada. I wonder if this lighthouse has anything to do with the jet that went down a few years ago over Nova Scotia.

Nukke said...

Very nice red pic !

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Seems strange that there's no explanation about why it's there. Hmmm.

Felisol said...

A beautiful lighthouse.
It's this song, I don't actually go in English. "Midst in the darkness of the night, the name of Jesus is shining like a lighthouse."
It's the song I think of every time I see a lighthouse.

Carletta, yes His lighthouse and a guide for all His people! I love this and thank hubs for pulling over! My hubby doesn't alway want to pull over... :(

quilly said...

Well, aren't we supposed to let our lights shine? ;)

Patti said...

This is a beautiful RT photo, Carletta. And to think that it is so far inland. Very cool.

Shine on ~

Rona Michelson said...

Just beautiful. It's a great picture. So peaceful.

Prospero said...

Water - that's so passé.

Rose said...

Oh, Carletta, I love this.

Carletta said...

EG - Their statement says: 'OUR LIGHTHOUSE WAS BUILT TO HELP GUIDE THE HEARTS OF MEN THROUGH THE STORMS OF LIFE AND TO PROCLAIM THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.'

Ralph said...

A lighthouse in the Allegheny's I have not considered. Obviously on the Atlantic up here lighthouses abound with the rocky inlets to be avoided. The mountains in MD seem odd for this, yet illumination provided by the sweeping light is always impressive...

Hildegarde said...

You answer my question : is there water then ? Overlooking the traffic, OK :-))

Thom said...

That's cool And even though it doesn't have water around it I love it :) Excellent photo :)

Marites said...

that's really cool! and no water around? hmm...interesting!

Janice Thomson said...

Very symbolic in many ways. Beautiful shot.

Digital Flower Pictures said...

It did looked familiar. Really classic.

Jim said...

Yes, Carletta, there are several examples I had thought of. Some are listed above.
First I suppose is to 'Let your light shine ... "
The second is, as asked byt the Ethiopian, "Look, here is water. Why shouldn't I be baptized?" Except that there isn't any water here.
Happy RT! I really do like the barn you found. I am glad you took the picture.
:-)

George said...

This is so neat. A lighthouse is a very appropriate symbol for a church. Thank your husband for pulling over and letting you get this picture.

~Just me again~ said...

I like the pretty lighthouse. Happy Ruby Tuesday.

Liz said...

What a lovely site!

Gattina said...

What a nice shot ! and I am really surprised, that's the first lighthouse I see in my life not standing at the beach to guide the ships. Maybe here it's for the airplanes ?? It looks rather bizzare !

luna miranda said...

a cool shot! it's probably guiding flying objects.:P

Grace and Bradley said...

Very interesting, the walkout platform must gave a very impressive vista of the surroundings. Thanks for sharing.

marian said...

what a FAB pic, i LOVE lighthouses!..thanks also for commenting on my blog and yes i have finished the doll quilt :)

hip chick said...

I have been to Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia but not to this light.

Kerri said...

Great one for RT! Beautiful shot!

Loree said...

The setting is so serene. I have never seen a light house which was not next to the sea. Very interesting.

Robin said...

I thought that looked familiar! My parents were just in Peggy's Cove two weeks ago and sent me a whole slew of photos.

I like the symbolism of the lighthouse as house of worship, very "light unto the nations" stuff.

Jane said...

It could be a memorial lighthouse, I like lighthouses-nice shot of it. The light must be a decorative one and not aiding navigation since there is no water around to mark.

Thanks for sharing:)

Judy said...

Carletta, there is a dry lighthouse near my parents, situated on the lands belonging to a Ukranian Orthodox (I think - or maybe Greek) monastery. They have placed large paintings done in the old style, of the life of Christ, all along the walls of the tower. I will take some photos when I am there next. Likely Christmas.

Tulip said...

what a beautiful light house, i'm sure its so cold there as there are lots of lush green trees behind it.

Sue said...

Beautiful light house, even though it's not near any water - lol.

Great capture.

Denise said...

What a treat to come across a lighthouse so far from the sea. Beautiful shot Carletta.

JunieRose2005 said...

Very interesting post and picture of the lighthouse.

I have never seen one not near water either.

bj said...

Amanda said...

Carletta, wonderful capture I am so glad you added the statement it really pulls the meaning of its purpose together, have a great RT.

Auntie E said...

I think they are prepared for a new flood. I see the Red Pier. Happy Ruby Tuesday

Tom said...

A unique light house for sure..

storyteller said...

Fascinating find ;--)
I'm glad you shared this unique light house with us today! Thanks for dropping by Small Reflections.
Hugs and blessings,

Stephanie V said...

That's an interesting idea. It certainly makes a statement.

This Is My Blog - fishing guy said...

Carletta: I love lighthouses and this is a neat one.

Mimi said...

Well, it's a novel way of proclaiming that Jesus is the light of the world, I'll give them that!
Your photos are stunning, Carletta.

Raven said...

You find the best things to photograph. Lovely.

I have never seen a lighthouse up close before. Another thing to do before I die!

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

To a safe harbor
the lighthouse will guide the lost—
so follow the beam.
