|I didn't bring my kayaks, but others did and they saw the lighthouse up close and personal.|
|Much of the palmetto trail looked like this.|
I was under the impression that if I walked far enough--and fast enough to avoid the dive-bomber-sized mosquitoes--I could get to the base of the lighthouse for some good photos. Wrong. I got within about 100 yards and the land ended. I wasn't in a swimming mood and didn't have my kayak, so I had to be satisfied with a good hike, a good sweat and a good view.
Here's the hike and the view.
|The old lighthouse is gorgeous from any angle.|
