Lighthouse Point, Point Roberts, Washington

This aid to navigation is located in Lighthouse Marine Park, Point Roberts, Washington. It is  25 foot tall skeletal tower with a beacon and diamond shaped daymarker. It is at the southwest point of Point Roberts which is a point of land in the US that juts out from Canada at Tsawwassen, B.C. It is part of Whatcom County, Washington, although is detached from the main part of the county and one must enter Canada and then reenter the US to access it. A society is working with the US Coast Guard to build a proper lighthouse on this site. Photos taken in May 2018.
