Architecture tourists can't live by homes alone: Irresistible to humans: barns, bridges, lighthouses.
For Whitehaven who is just back from the beach too, check the checked floor.
This is Ponce de Leon Inlet Light, tallest in Florida. Each lighthouse has a different look and different flash. This is the glorious red one, the light pattern is six flashes in a fifteen second period followed by a fifteen-second eclipse.
Rachel and I climbed to the top on the gorgeous iron stairway for $5 each. Looking up was harder for me than looking down.
I took off the supplementary oxygen for the picture.
What a view.
Our support crew, Deb and JoAnn, stayed way, way down there.
The grounds have more charm that most places today. I guess some modern beach houses approach this, maybe some...
P.S. If you are in the neighborhood, you might meet Santa Larry from the Palm Tree Santas; they don't get much friendlier.
