East Point Lighthouse: I found this one interesting because it basically looks like a house with a lighthouse attached to the top. I've never seen this design before. You can only go inside this lighthouse one day a year but we were able to walk around the outside.
Cape May Lighthouse: This lighthouse sites at the very tip of New Jersey where the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean meet. We were able to climb this one and got a great view from the top. The area also has a lot of World War II history associated with it. There is a lookout tower that was used to keep an eye on any enemy ships approaching as well as a defense bunker on the beach which was camouflaged and manned through the war years.
World War II bunker: I kind of wonder why the bunker was never removed after it was no longer needed. I know it wouldn't have been easy to remove it, but it does take up a lot of real estate.
The rest of my trip was to the midwest to visit son #3 and of course, no lighthouses there.
So, I've just about caught up and am ready to dive back into some new sewing projects!
