Split Rock Lighthouse Part 2

Outside views from the top.
 
 
 
 






 
 
Just for fun...
before we hike down to the beach.
 
See no evil,
hear no evil,
speak no evil.






 
Heading down the 127 stairs
to the beach.
 
 
 
 
Exploring.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
This last shot is
"the shot."
It's popular in books, calendars,
notecards, etc.
Everyone takes it.
 
 
 
 

It was worth the climb down
and even the climb back up!

This is the year of the light house! I just seen another post from a blog I follow who went to a light house and we just got back from the Outer Banks where we went to 2 different light houses!

Beautiful area! Lovely light house! It's different from the ones we went to.

Breath taking pictures.

Pictures 125 are much like where I live.

Of cours I live where thre are like 20 lakes or more for hours.

So if one looks it is so similar and beautiful as you show.

Next Wed I am heading to the city for 2 weeks.

So will leave behind what you have enjoyed.

That is why fun and beauty goes around to different places right Jill.
