The tallest lighthouse in Florida
Today Karen and Max climbed the tallest lighthouse in Florida: The light station at Ponce Inlet, Florida, a couplefew miles south of my parents house. Today I remained on the ground with my daughter Leni, as I have a bit of an aversion to heights. (Last year I climbed to the top of the lighthouse with Max, but I was too chicken to go out on the rickety wrought-iron balcony at the top. Just call me Coward Man!)
Leni and I hung around the gift shop at the base of the lighthouse and added to her collection of elongated pennies, something I used to collect ever since my mom found two from the 1934 World's Fair which she gave to me when I was about 12 years old. I actually used to belong to The Elongated Collectors, and we would buy and swap elongated pennies back and forth. I still have the original two and am now chasing these whenever we find a "penny squisher" so that we can add to my kids' collections. Any of you have any to trade?
