This lighthouse, Is located at Barcelona Harbor, approximently 30 miles east of Erie, Pennsylvania, on the New York shore of Lake Erie.

Barcelona Lighthouse

Barcelona Harbor is where the fishing trawlers set sail for the abundant whitefish that have been known all over the country as a delicacy in smoked fish. The trawlers would leave the harbor early in the morning and return after dark, guided by the lighthouse.

Barcelona Lighthouse (Limerick)

The Barcelona Lighthouse can be seen for miles around,
Warning ships to not come near, or they will run aground.
Many ships were lost,
At quite an awesome cost,
But the Barcelona Lighthouse, now keeps them safe and sound.

Lovely take, Don, on a lighthouse that saves lives and money. I compare adults to lighthouses to our rebellious children to guide them gently away from harm -siva
