Visiting in the area for labor day week, trying to see as many lighthouses as we can. What a nice, well maintained lighthouse!

Found this one on our Road Trip to Maine. My wife is a Artist and Lighthouses are one of her favorite subjects.

Logged this one while at the nearby Fort Point deLight cache. Great views on a quiet winter afternoon, after long walk in.

Nice views from here. The keeper's house appears occupied as a private residence, but the park is open during the day. If the gate is closed, go a little further and turn left on Lighthouse St, to the end.
