Point Pinos Lighthouse, From the Left Coast

The Point Pinos Lighthouse is on the southern end of Monterey Bay in Pacific Grove, CA. Isn't that Fresnel lens cool?

That is such a cute looking lighthouse. Ours are in a totally different style.

That is just odd Steve. Beautiful, but odd, almost like the lighthouse is growing out of a regular house!

Oh I am longing to visit the left coast! My daughter is loving San Diego at this very moment!

Love the lighthouses in Massachusetts--very nicely done.
Happy Friday!

Interesting, I've never seen a lighthouse like that!

I never saw a closeup like that of the light Steve.

What appeals to me most are those stunning, odd shape trees on the left.

Nice ohotos, I remember this place.

Thanks Gennasus. Perhaps I'll see the lighthouses of Scottland some day.

Hi Sharon, There are some nice places in California. Certainly lost of stuff to photograph. I would stay away if you need nasty weather to keep you going.

Thanks Nonizamboni, This light is different than our New England Lights.

Hi Martha, This is a first for me too. I've never been to this light before.

Hi Joan, These are Monterey Cypress trees. Once a great forest of these existed along the central California coast, now just two small populations are left.

What an awesome lighthouse! The light part almost looks too big for the house. :-)

Picture postcard perfect!

A lot of the west coast lighthouses are of that style. I have been to the Point Loma lighthouse near San Diego and it is a similar design.
