Did You Know?
This picture isn’t so old, taken August 2006, but it is, or will become a bit of history. This shows the dismantled lighthouse that Art Peck had just removed from the new island left in the Delaware River’s Big Eddy by a hurricane in the spring of 2006. Inspired by his wry sense of humor, Art had built and then erected the lighthouse on the island, a bit of land that had arched far out into the Eddy. Because of safety issues, it had to be taken back down. But it sure lightened the impact of the hurricane and made for a great many laughs. My granddaughter Katie joined me in the picture. From my photo collection.
