We toured the Sandy Hook lighthouse, which was the first lighthouse on the eastern shore. They were not giving tours up the lighthouse till 1:00 p.m. so we decided just to walk the grounds.
|It was beautiful and the sky was really that blue.|
We also took some time walking around the park to see the ocean and also Sandy Hook Bay.
|You can barely see the buildings on the horizon but that is New York City|
We walked over to the Bay side and it was just spectacular there too.
|Walk the plank?|
|A few steps ahead as I am always stopping to take pictures.|
|Oh that reflection|
|We saw a couple of these along the beach.|
|Navesink Twin Lighthouses|
|We climbed this one to the top.|
|A view from half way up.|
|These bars made me feel much safer|
|Loved the stairs in the lighthouse|
After lunch we visited one of Mike's old Navy buddies, John and his delightful wife Eileen. Since it starts to get dark a lot earlier here on the eastern shore we decided to get one more look at some BIG WATER before we returned to the hotel. It was a beautiful day and we are both excited about picking up our boat tomorrow and heading home.
|We had a little company|
|Being that it was off season, it was really quiet and deserted.|
