For an assignment due Friday - I seek examples of lighthouses that have been turned into other things. Difficulty level -
I do some travel writing, and sometimes my editor pitches ideas to us. One idea was of "ten cases where lighthouses that have been turned into other things." That sounded interesting, so I took it.
But when my initial research hit a snag because I just plain can't find many distinctly different things which lighthouses have been turned into. And all the time I was hoping to spend digging into the background info about the different lighthouses, I've been spending trying to search Google for every configuration of "former/repurposed/used-to-be lighthouse" search I can think of just to simply find a hit for something where a lighthouse wasn't
turned into an inn or a restaurant or someone's summer house or whatever. I've only found a handful of different things:
a recording studio
a site-specific music venue
(the tower used to be a Roman lighthouse)
a time ball tower
And then a fucking metric asston of inns, history museums, and houses.
My editor definitely wants ten different ideas FOR lighthouses, and she definitely wants ten, and she definitely does not want inns or houses. I am stumped. Lemme know if there's a lighthouse near you that's been turned into something weird. Thank you.
