Lighthouse Island

We talk with the ladies who live on the cliff who tell us stories of the islands.
 
Together we remember the 100 year storm.  We meet Old Tom and hear of his life as a fisherman. Meg tells us of the way the clouds are shaped which shows a storm is coming. The way the seagulls are flying. The way the boats are rocking. We create songs of courage and we remember ...... the terrible storm .......
