68/297

When I decided to undertake Project 365, I wondered if I would be able to take a photo everyday. Well, sure I could, but would it be anything of interest?

I have lived in NJ all my life. I knew of several lighthouses, 3 in fact, but was recently surprised to discovered, we are home to 10 land based lighthouses, 2 light towers, 2 lightships, and 13 water based lighthouses. This peaked my interest. Perfect these would help to complete my 365. I made a plan to visit each of the land based. Today, with my trip to the East Point, I can say I have completed this quest.

I have been to 1 lightship and 1 of the water based, I hope to see the others. A fact which I found of interest, the Statue of Liberty is considered a Lighthouse.

awesome theme for your 365!! You should frame all the ones you've visited - what an interesting wall that would make.
