Below is a pretty realisitic shot of the stairway inside the lighthouse. It was quite an adventure and Christian seemed to enjoy it. He barely made the cut at just above 42" to be able to climb the stairwell. However, Christian apparently didn't make the cut in not aggravating the guide up at the top by the light. Christian said (in his gadget-obsessed fashion) that the light shouldn't be blinking. He said it was "broken" ebcause it was blinking. Before I even had a chance to explain to Christian why the light blinks, the guide got very angry and defensive and practically yelled at Christian that the light wasn't broken. He really overreacted to a 5yo boy's comment. You can tell the other tourists up there at the top were aggravated by the way the guide reacted to Christian's comments about the light. I decided to leave a comment about it on the comment card on my way out. Don't get me wrong, I know my son is a handful, but the reaction to him was not warranted. Christian did a good job following directions and not going where he wasn't supposed to. He just "followed directions" and "did well" in his high-energy ways.
Aren't the flowers gorgeous? Between the green, flowers, cliffs, blue waters and seals (and yes, the lighthouse despite the grumpy guide) it is pretty close to paradise here!
