i like that the shadow of the lighthouse itself can be seen
....peter:): those are the reflections of the windows on the back side of the lighthouse Sherri....petersmile
I always love what can be seen from on top of these lighthouses. Am I guessing that there is not a lift and therefore only Penny was able to go up?
....peter:): the view from the top is great Ginnie.... there was no lift and Penny climbed the 121 steps to the top... it would take me all day just to go up.....petersmile
That really is a great view.
....peter:): it is a nice view from inside the top Michael....petersmile

There is certainly a commanding view of the top of the lighthouse. I wonder from how far away can its light be seen? There will be a limit in any case because pf the curvature of the Earth.
....peter:): this lighthouse light that had a range of of five miles Alan...
{sorry for the correction...}
The OAK Island Lighthouse stood thirty-feet tall displaying a fixed white light that had a range of nine miles... it is in the queue for April 30th...

That is a wonderful view and I love the bronze plaque explaining things. You picked the right day to go and enjoy the view, Penny.
....peter:): Penny says thanks Astrid... the plaque does describe the multiple staircases to the top of the Lighthouse... 121 steps....petersmile
