51/314

The sun was shining, the earth was warming and I rejoiced. In celebration of this glorious day Phriend and I went to explore another one of our “local” lighthouses. The Tucker's Beach Lighthouse is a recreation of the original which fell victim to a raging stormy ocean, in 1927. Non the less, it is an replication and even houses the original Frensel lens. It sits in a maritime heritage area surrounded by historical homes and shops. There are demonstrations and classes, if you are so inclined, of decoy carving and basket weaving. We found many photo opportunities and we can now check another lighthouse off our list.

I love that you're chasing lighthouses! It's a beautiful composition, with the helm in focus and the lighthouse in the background.

What a delightful place. Love that rudder on the boat in front of the lighthouse.

We've come this far- now we should make it a point to visit every lighthouse in the state. I'd love to jump into that picture and go back to the warmth!
