Water under the Bridge

Views from London Bridge and along the channel towards Lake Havasu and two of the City’s miniature lighthouses: the East Quoddy and, on the opposite bank, barely visible in the twilight, the West Quoddy.

Did you know that Lake Havasu City is home to more lighthouses than any other city in the entire U.S. of A.?

There are 28 scaled-down replicas of lighthouses from the East Coast, the West Coast and the Great Lakes, dotted all around Lake Havasu and alongside Colorado River down to Parker Dam. And they are not just there for decorative purposes – these mini lighthouses are fully functional navigational aids.

More about the exact position of the lighthouses can be found here.

Do not go gentle into that good night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
