Long Point Light Synopsis

Long Point Light is a short piece on a personal experience I wish to share with everyone. I attempted to convey the excitement and mystery of this little private island-like area. My motivation behind writing about this experience was to paint a fun and almost exotic scene. The idea of pirates sailing the seas in search of treasure seemed to translate well to our journey across the bay in order to reach the treasure of this secluded beach. It truly is a joy to kayak across the bay, getting soaking wet, to finally arrive at the rocky beach to dry in the sunshine. The most poetic piece of the story is the lighthouse. It is inaccessible, quite unassuming, and fascinating in its seemingly ordinary and yet forbidden character. My goal was to make the piece seem as far from an article found in your typical travel magazine and instead come across as prose, a little story told.
