Part I ~ Sandy Hook
I did not attend the NJ Lighthouse Challenge which took place over this past weekend. But keeping in the spirit, B and I went to Sandy Hook. I have posted this lighthouse previously, most recently on 9-11 when Phriend and I made a ill faded attempt to capture the tribute lights in NYC.
Sandy Hook is the oldest U.S. operational Lighthouse. It stands at the mouth of the Hudson River, the waterway entrance to New York Harbors and is surrounded by a deactivated Army base. This coastal artillery base was commissioned in 1874 and protected the harbor for over 100 years. The gunnisons and batteries are decayed beyond repair and are fenced off making them visible but off limits to visitors.
Yesterday being a warm Autumn day and with B and Willow in tow, we took a walking tour of the area.
