Fascinating stories of a Coast Guard engineer and a wonderful lighthouse restoration

Light Hearted ep 254 – Laurie Perkins, Tawas Point, MI; Dan May’s new book “Preserving America’s Lighthouses”

As an ocean engineer for the Coast Guard, Dan May worked on lighthouse projects from Delaware Bay to the Carolinas to New England, including the relocation of Block Island Southeast Light -- the first move of a major lighthouse structure in the United States. Dan retired as a rear admiral in 2013. He is the author of a new book published by the U.S. Lighthouse Society, called "Preserving America’s Lighthouses: Memoirs of a Coast Guard Ocean Engineer."
