Ponce Inlet Lighthouse

While I have the time and ambition, I’ll finish up the pictures of places I went with Bob and Misty so she can sincerely regret going back to snowy St. Louis!  Misty and I both love lighthouses and this is the second one we went to and climbed all the way to the top.  She saw some more on her way home along the Panhandle, but this one is the best.   Here’s Misty and Bob with the sign.  Another gorgeous day!

Bob & Misty by sign

I like what this sign says.  Click on it to read the creed of the Lighthouse Board.

Pic on left is looking up from the bottom and on the left is looking down from the top.  203 steps.  Phew!  Looks kind of like a Nautilus shell.

Here’s Misty and I at the base . . .

. . . and at the top!

Here it is in all its glory.  Rigging and scaffold for repairs.

Tiny moon!

Views from the top.  Russel and Greta at the bottom in second pic.


Very cool to be able to drive down to the beach where we saw Black skimmers, hundreds of them!

Here’s Bob and Misty’s Odyssey, living up to its name.

That’s it for Misty and Bob’s big adventure.  Thanks for stopping by.  As always, comments are welcome.

The one that you are looking down the stairs looks like a shell.
Way cool!

I love reading and seeing your adventures, and wish I could be part of them too. I agree that photo does look like a shell. You have taken some gorgeous photos xx
