Hunting Island Light

The Hunting Island is nearby and this evening we walked the beach and climbed the old light tower.  One of the nicest parks I have ever visited.  I'm posting a few pics just to share.  Hope you all enjoy!

The view from the awesome beach

Looking straight up inside the structure, you can see the iron steps and landings. This design was modular and was actually relocated once to move the light house inland from an eroding shoreline.
The entrance with date of construction

On each landing there's a small plaque with historical vignettes 

No longer a functioning light, the Hunting Island Light has a storied past.
On a walk along the beach several tidal pools held starfish

This little guy was relocated from a dry pool to a deep one.  One starfish saved!
Hope you liked the pics...
