 :cat:  How many of you like to study about lighthouses?  Have you visited and/or climbed any of them? 

I love lighthouses and have climbed the St. Augustine Lighthouse in Jacksonville, FL.  I collect the miniature lighthouses and have visited the Lighthouse Depot in Maine.  My great-great-great grandfather served as a lighthouse keeper at the Absecon Lighthouse in New Jersey.

Back in 1989 we went down to the coast of NC and stayed on Ocracoke. There is the lighthouse on the island there, then we did a tour of all the others up and down the coast of NC. It was great! None of them were open at the time, though. I really wanted to climb them and look out over the Atlantic!

I think they're okay, but my step mom really loves them.  Always easy to know what to get her for Christmas - anything with a lighthouse on is.   ;D

I haven't really toured any but would rally like to. They always seem to have great history and a really cool atmosphere for movie sets.

My gramma always collected them and painted them. The only one I've been to was a little one in Nassau.

Isn't it cute!? lol

It is cute.  It's like a miniature!!!

Thanks for the link - I've already bookmarked it and looked through it!  I did have an aunt and uncle who lived in Montana that visited the Haceta Head Lighthouse and loved it.  They gave me a box of notecards of it.  There are some beautiful lighthouses on that site!
