Lighthouse of the Week, April 17-23, 2016: Sombrero Key, Florida

Sombrero Key isn't your typical round cylindrical land-based lighthouse.  Instead, it's a steel frame screwpile model situated on top of the titular key, and a landmark for scuba diving on one of the biggest and best reefs in the Middle Keys.   The lighthouse itself dates back to the Civil War era.

It's a neat lighthouse, as it is situated above the beautiful waters of the Florida Keys. I included a map to show where it is located.
