Today’s photowalk: Jupiter!
Florida, silly, not the planet! haha!
More specifically, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse.
As previously promised, a bit of history first:
Conceived in 1851, the Jupiter Lighthouse was constructed in stages over the next eight years. The chosen site was part of the Fort Jupiter reservation that was established during the First Seminole War in 1836. The lighthouse at Jupiter was first illuminated on July 10,1860. Over the years the humidity and sea air discolored the brick and it was painted red around 1910. The Light was converted to electricity in 1928. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
Now photographs! YAY!
looking from the West:
can walk around the outside, if you’re not afraid of heights!
Pretty cool, eh? Yeah, I thought so too!
Well, that finishes up South Florida. Glad you could join along (minus the heat and humidity!)
We aren’t quite out of Florida yet though… sit back and enjoy the ride north! We’ll get there… eventually!
