    Favorite thing: Originally I thought I would not climb the lighthouse. I could have done so as it was open to climb. However the space inside at the top is limited. By the time I changed my mind about it, there was a long line waiting (photo 3). So I went to stand in line, but it was too long for me to stand.

    Fondest memory: They let me sit at the bottom of the tower and I took a picture looking up. Then Bob was getting impatient, so I left before I got to climb and went home.

    Bell Tower

    Bell in front of the lighthouse and quarters

    Favorite thing: !n 1880, a bell tower was built next to the lighthouse. Bells were used as a warning in fog when mariners might not be able to see the light. The bell was replaced in 1936 with a reed horn (foghorn). The tower was severely damaged in a storm, and afterwards was dismantled, although the outline can still be seen on the west side of the lighthouse.
