  • Beautiful tiny important piece of history that I hope will be preserved and restored sooner rather than later. From afar during low tide this lighthouse looks like it's sitting on a pile of rocks. During high tide it looks like it's sitting on top of the river. Nonetheless it's a ghost reminding us what life used to be life. Really enjoyed getting close to it and learning it's history.
  • A wonderful old lighthouse chock-full of history since its building sitting in the middle of the water. At low tide it is still hard to access. To really access this lighthouse you would need a boat or kayak. You cannot climb to the top of the lighthouse. Terrific photographic (zoom lens needed) opportunities abound throughout this entire area including the fort used during the Civil War. This is definitely a must visit. Highly recommend!
