The day dawned clear with little wind at our campsite, but we both still thought it would be windy at the lighthouse. Normally I would wear shorts and a t-shirt to work up in the "lantern room", but I decided to wear pants and a t-shirt. All the previous days I had been at the top of the lighthouse I had been comfortable because there is always some wind, but Wednesday there was NO wind.
With no clouds, and no wind it felt like a sauna set on "low" from 12:30 to 3:30. Thankfully we had a light day for visitors so I was able to descend to the "watch level" in between tours where it is 15 degrees cooler, or step out on the catwalk to cool down. Of course, when the wind dies, and it gets warm the flies love to invade the "lantern room", so I was also spending copious amounts of time swatting flies.....thank goodness the views where spectacular!
