This lighthouse is at the Santa Cruz Harbor in California. With the contributions of many people, including a major donation from Charles Walton, enough money was raised to construct this new lighthouse in 2001. It stand 41.5 ft. tall and is built to withstand a quarter million pounds of wave energy. This is a view looking out from the Crows Nest Restaurant. I grew up down the hills of Santa Cruz, in a town called Saratoga. We, (six sisters and a brother), spent many wonderful times in Santa Cruz.
