This children's book was written about the Little Red Lighthouse under the GW Bridge. When the bridge went up, they left the Lighthouse where it was and it is really surprising to see it nestled right up against the pylons of the bridge.

It is a 5 minute walk from my apartment. You have to go over the WestSide Highway on a pedestrian walkway and then down a pretty steep hill for a tiny bit, over railroad tracks and down another small hill and then all of a sudden you are in a park alongside the river. You are close enough to the river to stick your toes in it if you want to and there are tennis courts, picnic tables and benches and it is wide open to the broad expanse of the river.

At night sometimes you get the train whistles as the Amtrak trains go by and when it is really foggy you get fog horns...
