We loved the view! There was a lot to do.
We disliked that there was no places to eat anywhere near there. Their state park should invest in a lodge to eat at. Even if they'd just have sandwiches they'd certainly sell them. I think we would have stayed longer if we would have had lunch.

Was to pay, for a tour at The Visitor's Center. It was so worth it!
They had a fun little stand, where you could peak your heads in. Of course, since I take 99.9% of the photos I had to Photoshop myself in there. While I was at it, I put in a few local people that everyone knows. Travis rolled his eyes and said, "Really?!" I took them out, and put in puppets.
The View from the Visitor's Center:
I had never seen a Lighthouse (except for in movies). I was excited. I did feel like I was patiently waiting a lot. I wanted shots with no people in them. That's not easy to do.
I do wish the sky was a little more interesting that day.
See the rock retaining wall that holds the steps up? They tell you not to climb on those in the Visitor's Center. A Mom - not me, decided it was a great idea to have all her kids climb on there to take a picture. Sometimes rules are meant to be broken. When it's not our place, we should respect the property of others.
The square building off to the side had a little shop.
The Outside of the Lighthouse:
It was pretty cool!
The Inside of the Lighthouse:
Down the Steps They Went!
Isaak said, "Why do they have 2 railings. I don't have to hold on to either of them!" I said, "Yes you do! The steps are metal, steep and slippery. Hang on!"
While we were going down the steps I could hear a drone flying around. Another one of their rules was, "No Drones Allowed!".
Backside of the Lighthouse:
Finally a little blue in the sky!
View From the Lighthouse:
There was a house that was built at the same time the Lighthouse was built. They had it close to its original state.
I have one of the dolls that was in their cradle.
I loved their attic stairs! That was my favorite thing about the house.
Leaving the Lighthouse:
There was a long walkway where we could travel along to see the Lighthouse from a distance, and water views. It was super pretty!
Travis and Mica kept saying, "Hurry up!" How could I when I kept getting shots like this:
Lighthouse From a Distance:
My favorite shot:
Enjoying the View:
Along the way I talked with a family from India. They know over 4 languages. They said their English was rocky. I thought they spoke pretty clear. It was fun that they traveled so far to to see what we were seeing, for the first time.
Back to the Car:
How many lighthouses have you seen?
