Mary Louise Hill, a resident of Tucson, Arizona, had always dreamed of visiting lighthouses along the California coast, but never had the chance.  In her own words: "To see the tugs towing the ships through the fog, the light cutting across the sea and hear the mournful sound of the fog horn would be a wish come true!"  An LPN in a VA hospital for over 20 years, Hill is now retired, but still volunteers as a senior companion and greeter at Armory Park Center in Tucson.  She also volunteers in her community at Pima Counseling on Aging and in her church.  Her wish to travel to California and see lighthouses came true on May 14, 2012 when she and companion, Wendy Reuter, traveled to California and toured the Point Montara and Pigeon Point lighthouses.
