This is my last minute entry to the Mini Castle Contest:
: This once-barren island was discovered by a group of sea-faring monks, who liked the remote location, and labored hard to construct a new monastery there. However, they soon realized the need for a lighthouse in the area, and incorporated a large tower to shine a light for other travelers - to show them the way.
Sailors without hope can find refuge in this medieval lighthouse. The fires burn brightly, and warm men's souls.
