Welcome to 2020! I hope everyone is doing well as many folks all over the country are staying home to stay safe from the Coronavirus. Remember, if you’re home and have nothing to do, you can always order copies of Volume 1 – Foggy Point Light and Volume 2 – Ripples, Return to Foggy Point Light. They’re available in all of the major eBook formats, Apple Books, Barnes and Noble Nook, and Amazon Kindle, so you can enjoy a completely “contactless” purchase and begin reading the same day on your favorite device! Go to www.foggypointlight.com where you can order from your favorite book distributor.
On todays post, I’d like to highlight our YouTube channel, Foggy Point Light YouTube. We have a collection of nautical themed videos including South Bass Island and Fairport Harbor along the shores of Lake Erie. During the last few days, we’ve added several new videos including Marblehead Lighthouse (shown below) and Summersville Lake Lighthouse which was also from the same trip.
Summersville Lake Lighthouse has the distinction of being West Virginia’s only lighthouse, which isn’t too surprising since the entire state is in the mountains. It’s actually at a campground but the campground does have a lake! At the time, I was learning drone photography, so both Marblehead and Summersville Lake lighthouses include drone video on the channel. Check these out as we fly around both of these picturesque lighthouses.
From time to time, we’ll include bonus videos which may not necessarily have a lighthouse or nautical theme. For fans of “The Waltons” TV series which began in 1972 and aired for 9 seasons, we visited Schuyler, VA, home of Earl Hamner, Jr, the creator of “The Waltons”. I filmed drone videos showing the house that Earl Hamner, Jr. grew up in and the church that he attended as well as John and Olivia’s Bed and Breakfast which opened in October 2019. John and Olivia’s (pictured above) might look a little like the Island Charm Bed and Breakfast featured in Volume 1 of Foggy Point Light. Since it’s in the mountains of Virginia and not on an island, you might have to use your imagination to hear the sound of the seashore echoing at the edge of town.
I hope you enjoy our YouTube Channel and if you have a favorite video, please be sure to let us know.
