Blue SkyWatch ~



I knew of 3 local lighthouses. Recently after doing an internet search, to my surprise, I discovered there are actually 12 land based and 11 water based lighthouses. There are, also, 2 lightships all within an hour drive. We plan on visiting them all. I had known of the one pictured for years but had not make the trip to visit. One glorious day last week, I packed up my camera and with my husband in tow, headed up to take some photographs. We can now check this one off the list.

I just love lighthouses and to have it just a few miles away from home is something that I envy you. That lighthouse is really pretty especially with the blue sky background. Happy skywatching!

Mine is here.

Hi Trish, a beautiful lighthouse. Quite a substantial accommodation for the lighthouse keeper if there is still one. I like it how it is surrounded by trees, the sky is a lovely azure blue.

Hi Trish, I also have a soft spot for lighthouses. With the electronic era the need fot the traditional lighthouse keeper has fallen away and many of lighthouses have been opened up as tourist accommodation. We stayed in one in Namibia a few years back.
