Boca Grande Lighthouse, Gasparilla Island, Florida
This beautiful lighthouse sits in Gasparilla Island State Park at the South tip of Gasparilla Island, Florida near Port Boca Grande. It was built in 1890 and was inactive between 1966 and 1986. It was renovated in 1985 - 1986 and houses a small museum. Photos taken in March 2011.
Someone asked me, "What is it you love about lighthouses?'
I guess it is because seeking out lighthouses as a hobby combines so many things that I enjoy: travel, the sea, being outdoors, photography and history.
So, having a lighthouse blog, allows me to share my love of lighthouses with others. Each post will be about a different lighthouse that I have visited and have photographed over the years. I hope you enjoy. I have also started a bird blog for the birds I have photographed (August 1, 2013).
