OK, no the lighthouse is not made out of sushi, and no it’s not really called a lighthouse! 🙂 Now that we’ve stated the obvious, it’s a metal constructed reef light standing in front of a sushi restaurant. Even knowing that, I’m still sticking with ‘Sushi Lighthouse’ that sounds so much better!
This reef light I’ve been told was made by master craftsmen and local artist legend ‘Lighthouse Larry’ who has done many such creations throughout the entire Keys. The beam atop the reef light actually works at night illuminating a beacon of guiding light to would-be sushi goers honing in on a delicious raw meal. 🙂
You can find this artist’s spectacular rendition of an offshore reef light next to the Hurricane Monument on US-1 at Mile Marker 81.5 oceanside standing in front of the Kaiyo Grill & Sushi Restaurant.
