 The tour began at the museum where a woman gave a detailed history on the Point Arena Lighthouse and described very graphically the workings of the light, foghorn and more.  And, then I was taken up the steel steps (the original spine of the first Lighthouse, otherwise destroyed in the 1906 quake) by a tour guide, Brian.  Brian did a great job in fleshing out the history and the features of the lighthouse.  (He clearly loves his subject.)  Ongoing renovations have now allowed the guides to take people outside on the deck rim just below the glass encased top of the Lighthouse.  Before, the infrastructure was weak and dangerous.
