Kasino Saki' This lighthouse, designed by Richard Henry Brunton, has the original stone foundation and the original cast iron first order lantern, but a modern concrete section was inserted between the two. Access to the lantern is now by an external spiral stairway.

There are two pips in a beaut, four beauts in a lulu,
eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.
No one knows how many humdingers there are in a lollapalooza.
