  • ① My Father (Part 2) My father, Murray Neil Baker, was born in 1927 and died in 2020. He was 92 years old when he passed away and had been married to my mother for sixty-three years. Even as my father got older, he was in amazing health. However, this past March, my father was unexpectedly diagnosed with terminal cancer that had begun in his lungs and had spread into his bones. My son and daughter and I immediately flew to Seattle to be with him in the hospital. We were at his bedside along with my mother when he passed away just four days later. The suddenness of his passing was a shock, but we will forever be grateful we were able to spend those final days with him. As my father had gotten older, he had begun to write down short stories from his life which he had bound into a little book. I am so grateful for that book and the memories it holds about my father. My children also wrote amazing tributes to him when he died that they posted on Facebook.

Throughout the Getty Center campus there are numerous fountains that provide relaxing water sounds in the background.

  • ③ Lighthouses There are many historic lighthouses around the United States. Lighthouses typically include a tower with a bright light at the top that serves as an important location beacon for passing ships. The very first lighthouse in recorded history was the famous Pharos of Alexandria, Egypt that was built about 280 B.C. It was 450 feet tall, similar to a 45-story building. The Northern United States has a series of five giant lakes called the Great Lakes that include Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Superior, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario. There are many scenic and historic lighthouses along these lakes. I really enjoy photographing many of these beautiful and historic lighthouses when I am in the area.
