Of course, the fog horn hasn't been in use for probably 40 years now, so I guess my favorite is really just a memory. Anyway, this is a picture of the old fog horn building when the fog horn was still in use. (I don't think "fog horn building" is the technical name, but that's what I'm calling it.)
Here is the fog horn building today; it's a museum.
Somewhere, there is a picture, taken by my mother, of me and my brother and sisters standing in front of this very building. One of these days, I'll find it and get it scanned in. Anyway, as we were standing there, getting photographed, the horn went off. Needless to say, it scared the crap out of us. A few years ago, my mother told me that she had asked the lighthouse keeper to blow the horn while we were standing there. hmmm. and I always thought I got my dry sense of humor from my father ....
I used to love it when the fog would roll in to the Harbor. First you would hear the fog horn blasts from boats on the lake and then, eventually, in response, the fog horn in the harbor would start blowing. It's been years since the fog horn has been in service, but just thinking about it, makes me smile.
