About the Site
This site originally came about after a honeymoon in
Cape Cod, a stack of photos, and a lot of spare time.
In general, we try to cover all the lights in a region
that the website covers. However, not all the sections
cover all the lights of the region. For example, the
Lake Erie section
covers only the Eastern end of the
Lake. The Pacific Northwest area has some large
gaps in Washington State.
A few notes on the photos - unless otherwise stated,
we've taken all of them. Some have come out well,
and some have not. We had the good fortune to visit some lights
on beautiful days, and the misfortune to visit others in
terrible days. Regardless of the conditions, we tried to
photograph the area to at least capture a feel for the
location. We make absolutely no claim to be
professional photographers. If you would like
to use the photos, please email us.
(See the home page
for the email address.) There is no charge - we only ask
that you ask permission to use the photos and reference the
website somehow if you do.
Visiting information at lighthouses is subject to change.
The dates and times provided are as current as possible,
but check with the lighthouse to confirm visiting hours.
If our schedule is out of date, let us know and we will
update our information.
Directions are based on maps and descriptions from several
sources. We try to be accurate, but mistakes can occur.
We strongly suggest taking a good area map (or use GPS) whenever you go
looking for lighthouses - it's easy to get lost on these trips.
The photos we've taken were taken from public viewing
areas, except in few cases where we were given explicit permission
to visit. Some of the lights are on private property - PLEASE
respect the privacy of the owners if you visit. In many cases,
these lighthouses are also their homes.
Finally - we don't make any money on this site. This site is not
a business. It's simply something we enjoy doing.
