Lighthouse of the Week, July 17-23, 2016: Cape May, New Jersey
I decided to go decidedly local for this one; the Cape May lighthouse in New Jersey. It's reachable by ferry from Delaware, a departure just a bit up the coast or over the border from the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
The Cape May Light is a utilitarian and simple light beige (it had been white for awhile) tower with red top, and no doubt photographed millions of times by now by Joisey beachgoers and ferry riders, too.
Here's what Lighthouse Friends has to say about it: Cape May, NJ
One tidbit from the above - this is actually the third lighthouse tower built on the site (or nearby).
