Go to http://www.collinsvacationrentals.com/ to see a video. Click the button with the lighthouse on the left side near the top. The man walking very close to the camera is Dennis the St. George Lighthouse Association President.

Still have the stucco, stairs and windows to do.

Very few people in late October 2005 thought this would ever happen.

The salvage and resortation has been amazing. In the begining few people thought it would go anywhere. Luckily some of us are stubborn. But, even I thought it would take much longer. It helped that 2 key people are retired and made time for the lighthouse.
