Lighthouse Continued from page 14 patrolsL But the most dramatic time was perhaps the coastal storm which sent waves crashing against the front door of the lighthouse. The storm of 1962 devastated the Cape region coastline when the nor'easter stalled and high tides piled on top of earlier tides, caus- ing massive destruction to the ocean blocks of coastal towns. Fourteen Foot Light sits near the Anchorage in deep water. It's near Big Stone Anchorage and the storm was wickedly powerful. "The whole lighthouse quiv- ered...I thought it was all over for us," Walls said as waves struck the front of the 40-foot high Light. But Walls and the other keepers came through fine. His wife and little girl on shore also came through the storm fine. "Now, it's a little piece of histo- ry," Walls said of their time on the water. Reilly is hoping to contact more lighthouse keepers or families of lighthouse keepers.. Anyone inter- ested in the reunions may reach her at 609-697-3260 or fax her at 609-697-1855.
