I would like to point out we stayed the night on this weekend adventure but I heard at the last lighthouse I went to that some individuals managed to make a pit stop at all of them in one day. I can't even imagine. How much time you spent at each stop. Did they climb to the top of any of them? Was there a line to wait in to climb to the top? Were they locals and new where they were going because we certainly didn't know the best routes.
I didn't climb all the lighthouses ( I wore my trusty ortho boot)
After Sandy Hook we preceeded to Navesink Twin Lights. These two lighthouses are the most northern houses. The roads were less than desirable to get to both destinations. At one point the road drove what look liked straight towards the water. I could not take a picture of that. The road curved around and curved back. On way to Navesink was a steep hill. I had to drive up and pull over to allow cars to come down. You drive up this one car lane and with a cliff on one side, good times.
This lighthouse looked like a castle or a fort. The two lighthouses were on each side with a main building connecting the two. I actually bought a postcard from this location because I couldn't get a picture of the whole thing.
It wasn't that quiet as there were a lot of people visiting the lighthouses so the beach was not their focus but I love to see an undisturbed beach.
Ok, I have practiced for this one. Up we went! My son wanted to go up and he made it all the way up except for the last 15 steps. So now picture me carrying up the rest of the way and then all the way down. Me and the boot! I am momma hear me roar!
Ok that is all I am sharing with you today. I hope you enjoy the small peeks into my trips. I have 7 stops to share with you. I can not express how fun this challenge was. How awesome it was that the state of New Jersey, the Lighthouse Society and the Lighthouse Managers Association of NJ invited everyone to see their state and their lighthouses.
