The Lighthouse Series - Cape Blanco Lighthouse

 The second lighthouse that I sketched was the Cape Blanco Lighthouse in Oregon.
The Cape Blanco Lighthouse is the oldest continuously operated light in the country.   It was first lit in 1870 and had the first woman lighthouse keeper in 1903, Mabel Bretherton.  The Cape Blanco Lighthouse has the highest focal plane above sea level at 256 feet.
