Leaning Lighthouse

Once upon a time there was a lighthouse in a small village surrounded by a beautiful flower bed at the base, and that lighthouse lit the night and brought many a sailor to safety. Then, a hurricane hit and caused erosion which had an effect so strong on the lighthouse that it began to lean. Although a plan was set into motion to remove the lighthouse, locals decided to keep it and promote it as their own "leaning tower."


The Leaning Lighthouse is popular amongst tourists who simple want a snapshot of the tower.
