  3. Interesting how so many lighthouse have red paint as a component. I find the images comforting as though the light house stands as beacon for navigation through all of life's perils.

    1. I read once the red paint last long..why they paint barns red. So maybe that is why.

  11. I've seen the classic lighthouses before, but the ones that are part of a house or shaped like one were a novelty. Great collection!

    1. Well, since you asked...lol
      NJ actually has more than 20, but some are in the bay and some in NY harbor, but 11 are on land and can be visited.
      Cape May, Absecon and Bargenat are the Big Three though.

  15. Beautiful! I love the Cape May photo for the color and the Pond Island photo for the opposite. And I love learning that there is a National Lighthouse Day!

  20. So many lovely lighthouses on the east coast and so beautifully captured.

    I didn't know there was a National Lighthouse Day. I suppose that living in the Midwest no one would mention it! We do have a lighthouse on Lake Michigan though... a small one.
