Sky Watch

There are probably very few more photographed landmarks in Port Townsend than this private residence built only eighteen years ago. Built as a vacation getaway, the Dimick lighthouse cottage is modeled after the nearby Mukilteo lighthouse built in 1906 with some changes to suit the owners. It is not for or intended to be for navigational use, but certainly gets its share of attention from passersby. A great spot for viewing Port Townsend Bay and the Olympic Mountains or, for that matter, skywatching.

See skies from around the world today on Sky Watch Friday.

18 years ago. Someone planned it well. It will never be dated.

It's beautiful! and so are the mountains and the sky! We do live in a awesome part of the world, don't we? Even if I do complain about the rain/gray/cold, let's face it, I'm a wuss! Thanks for reminding me of the beauty!

Cute little place. I'd like to live there, or else just go visit, if I knew the people.

It looks older and it is refreshing to see a buikding so young so well designed. I'd love that vantage point as it proves perfect for photography.
