Lighthouses are the silent sentries of the sea that beckon you home. Each had a distinctive light pattern and repeat sequence making them a welcome sight to a weary shrimper. During the relentless pounding of a coup nord bleu (pronounced COO NU’ORd BLU and meaning blue “norther”), the steady, circular flash of a familiar lighthouse provided a feeling of safety and seemed to say “I’m here . . . I’m here . . . I’m here . . .”
