Eleven lighthouses, two museums, and one life-saving station in two days. Approximately 450 miles in the car and many pictures later with a new camera. Just the lighthouses today as I'm still figuring this new software out and although HWNSNBP (otherwise now also known as the Clipboard Carrier) did all of the driving (thank you dear) I am beat.
Tinicum Rear Range Lighthouse - in Paulsboro on the Delaware - gives aid to the ships coming up the Delaware by marking the channel
Finn's Point Lighthouse - another range light that aids in navigation on the Delaware - from the top you can see the Delaware Memorial Bridge and Delaware
East Point Lighthouse - to me the most picturesque - on the Delaware Bay
Cape May Lighthouse - a very busy state park location with a bird observatory, beaches, and small museum.
Hereford Inlet Lighthouse - another picturesque setting with gardens in front and behind
Absecon Lighthouse - although the tallest lighthouse in the state, it is dwarfed by the highrise hotels and casinos of Atlantic City and sits almost obscured in their shadow.
Tuckers Island Lighthouse (Recreation) - the original "fell into the sea". This is created at Tuckerton Seaport
Barnegat Lighthouse - the closest to the water of all the lighthouses we visited. From the top, looking down you will see the water of the inlet below.
Sea Girt Lighthouse - contains a maritime museum with a lot of information on the rescue of the survivors of the Morro Castle cruise ship that caught fire off the coast of NJ in 1934
Sandy Hook Lighthouse - the oldest active lighthouse in the United States dates back to colonial times
Twin Lights of Navesink as seen from across the Shrewsbury River - some say the towers were based on chess pieces
