Save the Cape Blas Lighthouse

I came across this information from the Save the Lighthouse site.

The Cape San Blas Lighthouse is in danger of being lost again.  Between unrelenting beach erosion and storms have clobbered it often in the last 150 years.  The lighthouse keepers' cottages are very near to the waves now.  The lighthouse is just a short distance behind them.

The town of Port St. Joe has expressed an interest in moving the lighthouse and cottages, possibly to city property for a park.

The St, George Island lighthouse was also moved a few years back, but not until the structure was destroyed when it fell into the sea.  That required a lot of work.

Hopefully this one will be saved before it too falls into the sea.
