Lifelong Dream

This may sound like the strangest thing, but for my entire life I have always said that I want to live at a lighthouse. I can't even put into words my love affair with the ocean, and lighthouses have always gone along with that. Today I received an e-mail from my one of my older sisters, forwarding on an article to me. The Scituate lighthouse in Scituate, MA is in need of a new lighthouse keeper...

After reading the article my heart burst! Can you imagine actually having an opportunity like that?! I e-mailed them right away for more information (i'm such a nerd, i know). Come to find out that it technically isn't a job (you don't get paid for it) and that you are a tenant renting out the cottage for $900.00 a month. But still $900.00 a month year round right on the ocean, it's unheard of! It would be such a crazy move to pick up and leave Maine/New Hampshire and find a new job on the south shore...but do you think that I'm crazy if I'm considering it??

How could you not want to live here...?!





Especially after my post earlier this morning, mabey this is exactly what I need. All I need to do is find a job now...wish me luck!

Hi! I have so much fun reading your blog! Its great! I think if you have always wanted to live in or near by a lighthouse you should definatly give this a try. Im guessing opportunities like this don't come along that often. It sounds like a ton of fun and looks like a beautiful place to live. Just remember if it not what you expected you can alway move along. Your young ...go for it!

I would looove that! One of mine and my boyfriend's dreams is to turn a lighthouse into a bed and breakfast. That comes after med school, though!

WOW, these photos are incredible. Why not be a lighthouse keeper - as the saying goes - you regret the things you don't do rather than the things you do! :)
