Ponce de Leon Light Station

The lighthouse at Ponce de Leon Inlet has stood here since 1887.
It's the tallest lighthouse in Florida.... 203 steps will take you 175' to the top where you can look out over the Florida coastline and the Halifax River.

This lighthouse is the second on this site... you can read about it here.

I've always thought it might be fun to be a lighthouse keeper.

Glad you are still enjoying your stay in Florida. Start dusting off the winter boots though, and the thermals!

You don't need a heated toilet seat in Florida. Al Fresco pees are the order of the day in hot places!

Love the red against the gray sky, very stunning photograph. Would love to climb those stairs to the top.

We didn't climb to the top because we got there just before closing time. There's a museum and the lighthouse keeper's cottage too, so there wasn't time to see it all. Maybe next time.

Gorgeous lighthouse but it will take more than a great view to make me go up there. I hate tight spaces.

Good job on the photo.

WOW! That is quite a Lighthouse! It must be something to see everything from the top. Getting to the top sounds quite Daunting...lol!

Sorry, that was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this spectacular photo. Beautiful structure. I'd have wanted to climb to the top.

I love the drama of this picture Shammie. Great sky behind the red lighthouse. Very different to see the red structure.

lighthouses are so cool. We should have one in Nyack--there is a teeny one across the river.
