Va. man gets nautical

I recently stumbled across Skipjack's Nautical Living, a blog about a shop owner who collects and resells nautical antiques and furnishings, original marine art, salvaged ship parts, and other things nautical.

Joe Elder is the purveyor of Skipjack's Nautical Wares and Marine Gallery in Portsmouth, Va. He likes to repurpose the paraphernalia for the traditional coastal home.

In his latest blog, he details an old maritime lantern from the maker of the Fresnel lens used in many lighthouses, including Grand Haven's.
