S: Lighthouses we have visited
1: The first lighthouse we visited was on our trip to Florida in 1973. This Ponce De Leon inlet light is in Ponce Inlet. It was recommissioned in 1983 and has an aero-marine becon now producing the flashing white light, which has a range of 17 miles.
2: Our first trip to the ocean with the Keller family was in August of 1984. We stayed in his brother's beach house on Long Beach Island, NJ. We all visited the Barnegate Lighthouse while there. | The original Barnegat light was completed in 1835 by famed lighthouse contractor Winslow Lewis for $6,000. It was put out of service in 1944 and Jan. 1, 2009 exactly 150 years to the day that it was originally lit it was illuminated again. You can limb 217 steps to the top.
3: We visited Barnegat Light again in 2010 when we rented a house on Long Beach Island, NJ with Kevin, Jackie, Chris, Kelly, Ben, Owen, Frank and Lois.
4: Bodie Island and Cape Hatteras Lighthouses | Our first vacation to the Outer Banks by ourselves was in 1985. We rented a condo on the Ocean and the kids fell in love with the ocean and beach. We visited these 2 lighthouses that year. Caper Hatteras is the tallest lighthouse in the nation and a famous symbol in North Carolina.
5: New Cape Henry Lighthouse When Chris did his first Co-op in school he lived in Virginia Beach. We visited this lighthouse that guards the entry way into Chesapeake Bay in 1998.
6: Chatham Light on Cape Cod | Old Scituate Lighthouse on Cape Cod | We visited both March 12, 2001 when in Boston to see Chris and took a drive for the day to Cape Cod.
