We were working on an old lighthouse, converting it to an automated lighthouse. There was some old furniture in the lighthouse and one of the contractors who worked with me would arrange the furniture the way he wanted it arranged. We’d go back the next morning and all the furniture was back to the way it originally was again. Then one morning we arrived and there were seaweed footprints leading out of the ocean and up into the lighthouse. We learned that, years ago, the lighthouse-keeper went ashore for supplies this one day and a fisherman arrived at the lighthouse while he was gone and the lighthouse-keeper’s wife ended up running away with the fisherman. When he returned to the lighthouse and learned what happened, the lighthouse-keeper was broken-hearted and committed suicide. We think those were his footprints.
