The Gay Head Light is a special place to our family. We have been spending a month each summer in Aquinnah and make numerous trips to the lighthouse each year. Our kids love to go and picnic on the lawn and they adore climb up the winding stairs to look down at us and out across the Vineyard Sound.
The Lighthouse is a place of peace and beauty that makes us all slow down, breathe and enjoy the red clay cliffs, the sound of the waves, and the whisper of the breezes.
We often joke that someday, one of the girls will get married there- but this of course is only possible if the Lighthouse can be saved and moved. This historic, graceful building is an iconic part of the vineyard landscape and the Aquinnah vistas. My hope is that the light shines on!
