PERSPECTIVE

PERSPECTIVE

WHAT LEGENDS THERE WOULD BE!…In 1810 the US Congress earmarked $4k to build the Scituate Lighthouse.. constructed, and completed, in 1811. .. And has serviced, and survived for 202 years…even the Blizzard of 2013..As the lighthouse stands guard it is aided in survival by a CAT.. I could only think.. Sea Monsters do exist………. Put this scene back in 1811.. And…. “It rose out of the ocean, slowly creaking and grinding; crushing rock to do battle in hopes of draggin’ Scituate folk down to Davy Jones Locker.. But ALAS! Simeon Bates, 1st lighthouse keeper of the “Scituate Light”, lit the lantern and with torch in hand and sailor’s mouth fully amplified sent beastie back, tumbling to its master..
Or if it were to be transported to the War of 1812 it would put a new meaning to the famous, and true, historic event of “Rebecca and Abagail Bates “The Lighthouse Army of Two”.. So… “It rose out of the ocean, slowly creaking and grinding; crushing rock to do battle in hopes sacking Scituate for the British Crown.. But ALAS! out of the misty shore came Rebecca and Abagail Bates with fife and drum.. playing loudly, sounding like many a soldier coming to Scituate’s aide sending once feared now fearful beastie back to it English master…. Either way, sea beasts do exist, just a matter of perspective…
