Some very nice thoughts, very vivid images.

I think you have more to say in this piece than what came out of it. A near shipwreck is certainly more interesting than the list of descriptive words that began your article. Clear out the dreary and write the exciting. Even if the exciting exists only in your mind. Go for it - the story is there!

I enjoyed reading this it was full of words that helped me picture the scenes.
I would have liked to see more on lighthouses and ships especially since this would have linked nicely with your last two paragraphs. It was these latter paragraphs that contained some interesting ideas that were inspiring and thoughtful. Thanks for sharing.
