Welcome to NGA dyomite59! Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Welcome diomyte59. This is such a wonderful place. A garden away from garden so to speak. Big Grin
I was just sitting here enjoying the company, plants have a lot to say if you just take the time to listen.

That looks an awful lot like Half Moon Reef Lighthouse,on Matagorda Bay on the Texas Gulf Coast.

It sure does! I don't know if I could do that kind of job and be so isolated out in the gulf.

From what I read, it is no longer used as a lighthouse and I think it has been moved inland.
