Ponce de Leon Inlet lighthouse


Thursday 10th August


This morning we drove a few miles south to the Ponce de Leon Inlet lighthouse, an historic 1880’s brick and granite structure. This was the result of a recommendation from another fellow blogger at House of Heart

And thank you so much for the terrific suggestion. It was great to see this national landmark.

175 feet tall with 203 spiralling steps, that become noticeably steeper and smaller as you reach the top; and climb them all, we did, and were greeted with spectacular views from the gallery deck. New Smyrna Beach and the inland waterways sparkled in the warm sunshine.

I think you would have liked to climb the lighthouse steps with us ~ a few years ago you enjoyed clambering to the top of the lighthouse in Harbour Town, Hilton Head Island, especially when you were rewarded with a large ice cream afterwards!

The afternoon was spent on the beach, beneath a large umbrella giving welcoming shade. You would have splashed about in the sea, or walked up and down the sands. 

Missing you, my lighthouse buddy

Love you sweetheart, so much

So quiet and relaxing
