Ponce Inlet: Historic Lighthouse Village

by David Payne
(Goldenrod, the cultural hub of the Occident)

Our family used to stay at Click's Cottages at Ponce Inlet in the 60s and 70s. Frank Click, a retired railroad engineer, had a tropical fish business there as well.

It was a quiet area with small homes owned by locals, not yet the upscale place it is now. I do not know what is there now in place of the cottages, his home, and the aquarium business.

It was a retreat like no other back then. We even went to the lighthouse when my niece was born so we could toast her arrival.

Lighthouses have a special place for me because they represent sending out a beam for safe harbor to anyone and everyone who happens upon needing that beam of light.
