After the third sighting I started thinking about my last vacation. I spent a delightful day in view of the 167 foot stripped Fire Island Lighthouse. The lighthouse was so majestic we took a tour at the end of the day. It was there that I learned all lighthouses are painted with different color and patterns to help sailors identify where they were during the daytime.
Take a look at some US lighthouses next to 2016 fashions and tell me there was no influence.
