Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 12/15/09 10:00 PM

I will start a new game which will give a view of a lighthouse that may be different or partial.
After awhile if the original view can be updated to reveal a closer or larger part of the lighthouse. You should be able to id the lighthouse with any photo with a little investigation. So give me a minute to post the first digital.

If you are correct, you have the option of posting the next Mystery LH. If you don't have one right now let me know. I have a few to start.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 12/16/09 07:20 PM

This is what I can see so far in the picture, though still no idea which lighthouse.

U.S. light (obviously)
3 - 6 order light (shape of lantern)
Ground comes up behind it so its on shore

I can't tell if thats a fresnel in there or not.

I believe it is Chatham, MA

Compare (Mystery LH #1-3) with the picture on Lighthouse Friends. Even the chimney tops on the Keepers Quarters line up just right.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 12/16/09 09:15 PM

I was going from photos 1 and 2, but I see what you mean Stephanie. When I looked at aerial photos in Marinas I couldn't see the stair down to the beach, however when I look at a satellite photo I can see a stair with a landing. Still not sure though. When I saw the porthole windows, I thought of Montara, knew it wasn't that one, but I knew it came from Mass. so I went there. Fun search! Really like the way you are giving us a little more and a little more...

Okay, I will go with Chatham.

Not Alaska.
I guess I misled you a little. It's on an island claimed by both Canada and US. When I was there the research team that was studying the birdlife on the Island and taking care of the lighthouse was USA.
So John is in the ballpark as Eric stated.

Posted By: rscroope

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 12/23/09 06:56 PM

I was at this lighthouse in 2001. We went by boat and then had to take a smaller boat to the rocky shore and climb about 100 yards over the wet rocky shelf to get to the edge of the island.
We got to observe the Puffins as well as climb the lighthouse. Because of the rough seas only 4 of the 15 of us actually got to go on the island. I guess it was precariosus enough that no complained although disappointed. This was my first lh adventure with Merle Wiggins.

I'm aware of you guys checking my trips! lol

BUT I've been on many trips. biglaugh

Make sure when you post you lighthouse pic that you don't leave the lighthouse name in the downloaded name. It can be seen on the image tag.

Glad you're having fun. I thought of this while taking photos on my last trip but found when reorganising my pics that I always took shots of interesting views and unique features that would work. And I'm sure you all did too!

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 01/07/10 09:51 PM

I did not realize there was a lighthouse at Grand Lake St. Marys! Want to hear a funny story? I once came very close to going to jail at this lake. I'm from Dayton Ohio, and went fishing here with my first husband and inlaws. We had heard that you didn't dare fish without a license, I didn't have one, but I fished anyway. Sure enough, the game warden was watching with binoculars and didn't buy my story that I was just holding my husband's pole. He said the law was that Ohio residents got a fine and others went to jail. I still had a Texas driver's license from school... I am sitting in the officers car, father in law is saying "if you have to take someone to jail, take me." I am 8 months pregnant at the time, and mad! I tell the father in law to be quiet, nobody is going to jail. Yes, right in front of the officer. I'm not ready to have the baby, but I am determined that if this man takes me to jail for fishing, he is going to be convinced that I am having it in his car and I will do my best to make him look like a fool. I have never treated any law enforcement with disrepect before or since. I did not go to jail, but I did pay a $125 fine, which at the time was about 1/2 my husbands paycheck. Very stupid thing to do.

He really identified the light... I just corrected the state.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 01/12/10 06:48 PM

Shortcake,

Eric was in the group I was in when I took that picture. That's why I said wrong state with the raspberry smiley. So he got the light, even though he struck out on the state.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 01/12/10 07:15 PM

Eric, what is that underneath the stairs? Spray on foam? What is the purpose? Curious....
Posted By: Weasel58

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 01/12/10 09:04 PM

Laura, what you are seeing is the rough cut back of the stones that make up the stairs. The are painted white. This light was built back in 1811, many of the lights from this time had stone or wood steps originally. Amelia Island in Florida is another light with stone steps. (Lighthouse friends photo don't have access to mine it's at home)

Below is the Lighthouse friends page on the light, about halfway down in the history of the light is a link to another picture of the stairs.

I think Loon is right, its a lantern room, awful short lighthouse blocked by trees otherwise. From looking at similiar lantern rooms, it was built between 1900 and 1930. Cannot find it though. frustrated
Posted By: Shortcake

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 01/21/10 02:06 AM

Yes Loon and Laura, it is a lantern room. The restored top portion of a lighthouse that was dismantled.

The lantern room and top portion of the lighthouse was restored (without the lens). It is on display in a city park.

The original third-order Fresnel lens manufactured in Paris by the firm of Barbier, Bernard, and Turenne, can be seen at.....?

Posted By: WackoPaul

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 01/21/10 09:10 PM

Yes it is a fan with a light.. It would get hot in the lantern room during the day so the fan would keep the air moving. When you would stay overnight you had full access to the lantern room day or night.

It's a great place to vacation, the breakfasts were/are superb.. It's been a few years since we have stayed there. We have stayed there twice, once in 1996 and once in 2001.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 02/19/10 12:37 AM

An interior light is not located on an Ocean or one of the Great Lakes. Hannibal is a river light but also an interior light beacuse it is located in the middle of the U.S.
For example the lights on Lake Winnebago are interior lighthouses.
Posted By: WackoPaul

First of all the coastline suggested the Northwest to me, and the very unique roof line like the Burrows Light said Washington light to me. Finally I knew you had gone on a trip in the area and that Derith probably got you in the light.

I'm not sure Ellie. I know some of these private LHs are not very cooperative, depending on who's living there. I've never had a problem going there. I worked all these LIChallenges at Cedar Island so I'm not sure?

It's a Play Set for the kids. What you are seeing over the fence is the overhead Fort or play house. Should have a latter on the right side or to the back as you are looking at it in the picture. Also should have a sand box on the ground below it. If you will look closely you will see the top of the Swings just behind it, that are attached to it.

Paul, maybe you could blow that up so that we could get a better look at the chan of the swing on the back side.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 03/09/10 11:05 PM

We have always loved to visit this light.. The shape of the tower is unique, I love the red shutters, also... Sue and I have been there at least 7 times over the years.. We always stop by on the way to or from the Alpena Lighthouse Festival.

Alcona Historical Society


The society has done a nice job of restoration of the lighthouse.. It is North of Tawas Light and South of Alpena light on Lake Huron just 4 miles North of Harrisville, MI..

I have been after HL to make a replica for years of Sturgeon Point Light..

Barnegat Lighthouse



Since we visited Barnegat after dark, a long long time ago, my best way of confirming it was to look at my HL collection. And in the case of Barnegat it had to be the OE revised lighthouse which is the only HL version with the circular windows at the top..

Having my whole collection on display has helped more than a couple of times when trying to figure out a mystery lighthouse that has been posted.

According to his Facebook post, Greg was in a hospital in Charlottesville NC yesterday.

He is riding Amtrack to NOLA and got served a dish with nuts in it. So they took him off the train and to the hospital.

By today he was expecting to be 'back on track' to NO.

Someone else should jump in here with a new lighthouse and Greg will catch up when he can.
Posted By: wvlights0

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 03/15/10 01:34 AM

Just until Greg gets back, what if we change the game just a little. I know I have several lighthouse pictures where I could not get very close and so those pictures can't be used for showing just a part of the lighthouse. I bet you have pictures like that too. You can really only identify the light by the profile, maybe a little color. Here's one to start with...


Now Greg, you still owe us a lighthouse. Get well and have fun.

That's it! I arrived at the Cedar Point Amusement Park in October 2008 and found it closed.

He let me in with promises not to tell anyone I saw that he did so. It's a great lighthouse. The HL piece shows it well. The roller coaster is not right behind it but is close. Oh, by the way with good binoculars you can see Marblehead Lighthouse across the bay.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 03/23/10 04:01 AM

I'm trying to figure the 'order' of the lens. maybe a 4th order -- judging by the man behind the lens in the first picture?

The red thing could be a red panel so that those seeing the light from a specific direction see RED as a warning. Or it could be a cylinder of red so that everyone sees the light as red.

Obviously the lens does not rotate.

Pretty big body of water behind the light. So it's not a river light. Could be Great Lakes light.

Stephine,

It was your fourth pic the one that shows the internal bracing and the "pyramidal" shape of the tower that gave it to me. I once spent some time on the "Friends of Head Harbor's" Flicker photo stream.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 03/25/10 05:46 PM

I was being a bit facetious.

Here is a bit more of the light from the outside



So what we have here is a very plain lighthouse both inside and out. But I think the unpainted interior brick is beautiful in it's uncomplicated way.
Posted By: Shortcake

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 03/25/10 07:29 PM

Could this be Cape Florida? I've never been inside to know what color the stairs are, nor if the inside bricks have been painted or not. But the outside pic looks as though it could be. But then it also looks like Cape May from what I see in that pic.
Posted By: rscroope

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 03/25/10 07:35 PM

Cape Florida Black again Stephanie.
I don't think Cape May too? I rememer Cape May being more elegant. But I can't find any interior photos?
Posted By: Shortcake

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 03/25/10 07:58 PM

I'm going to stick with my answer "Cape May" because here is the picture that I took last Sept.



Looks the same to me!

Even zooming in I don't see the red/white tower or the lamp on ground.
We were suppose to go by sea but 6-8 ft seas put us in the air. Certainly shows upclose & personal is the way to go. LOL
Posted By: Weasel58

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 03/28/10 11:17 PM

The red and white tower was removed a couple of years ago. It was used as part of either Macdill Air Force Base or Tampa International's radio beacon. I haven't been out since it was removed.


The lens is right beside the flag pole inside a square picket fence. The flag pole is in another square picket fence, which is the closest of the squares to the tower. In the photo Bob posted you can just make out the squares.

Posted By: wvlights0

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 04/09/10 07:57 PM

Cape Cod, Highland? The picture I found showed restored stairs, but very similar. Interior of Cape Cod is not painted though in this picture. Maybe the paint has been removed? I did a google search for images with the words lighthouse stairs - very cool pictures.

Cape Cod stairs
Posted By: Weasel58

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 04/09/10 08:45 PM

No not St Augie, Cape Lookout, or Cape Cod.

I will add that this lighthouse is kinda deceptive. The inside of the tower is much wider than one would think from looking at the outside.

Posted By: Weasel58

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 04/09/10 10:10 PM

Laura you got it. Hunting island is a Iron tower with a brick interior. The walls are very thin and this allows a larger interior space then one would expect. The landings are not lined up one above the other or alternating between opposite sides like in most towers. There is also the remains of Morris Island's first order lens in the base of the tower.

My very first lighthouse book had a picture similar to your next to last picture, except the waves were crashing against the cliffs. I have wanted to see this light ever since. Nancy and I tried, but got no closer than a campground on the shore. Is there any sign left of the original lighthouse? Did they show you were it was? After someone gets this one could you put in captions? I would love to know what the other buildings are. Thanks again Bob! You made my day.

That was my first thought also, but at St. George the steps are brand new and the brick inside the tower is not painted. Previous St. George had a metal staircase. St. Marks has a wooden stair but in much better condition.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 05/05/10 10:13 PM

Laura I had climbed the tower before the "gust front" hit. I could feel the tower swaying just a little on the way down. When I got outside the wind really picked up. Fortunately this was back in the day when they could drive you out to the lighthouse in a minibus and not have to ride the boat. I'll post a picture when I get home of some fast flapping flags and the lighthouse.

waytogo Laura

Bush Point Lighthouse is located on Whidbey Island in Washington state. This small lighthouse has been guiding mariners through the middle reaches of Admiralty Inlet into the waters of Puget Sound since 1933. Before its construction, residents hung a kerosene lantern on a pole warning passing ships on dark nights.

I don't think you will see this on the cruise, they go from Seattle past Victoria to Vancouver and then up the Inside Passage usually..

It was a nice long walk through the woods to get to see this light from the ground.. The only other images would be images of the woods that we walked through as these were shot from a 9 X 12 foot overlook area..

Well, Laura you managed to put up an image of just about the only Ohio Light I haven't been to, but I should have got it since HL did it and it is sitting in a cabinet staring right at me, in the front at eye level..

Bloody Point Front Range, SC?
The palmettos mean southern. Though the house is very similar, your picture has more to the house.... I don't think I am right, unless there has been an addition.
Paul, I took my son and two grandchildren with me on a short weekend trip. On the ferry to Put in Bay, there was a hearse carrying someone home for the last time. A man played the bagpipes as we crossed the lake. As the ferry pulled up, you could see all the family there to meet the hearse. It was very touching.

August of 2008. They were working on the iron gallery. Mosquitoes were vicious. anger The short walk thru the woods left Nancy and I both bloody. I would have paid $10 for the little bug repellant bottle in the gift shop at the base of the tower. I think it was only $5. :p

It was the piece of black hand rail and the lens that gave it away, then the little piece of red above the wrap made it a slam dunk..

Posted By: Moby Dick

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 06/02/10 06:32 PM


The 35 foot lighthouse was dedicated on March 25, 1988. Built of bricks covered with stucco, the lighthouse stands sentry over the Port of Mount Dora. The Mount Dora Light is the only inland freshwater lighthouse in Florida. It blinks out its address in red to mariners trying to find their way home across the waters of Lake Dora in the darkness of the night.

Posted By: Webmaster

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 06/04/10 07:07 AM

problem with flickr is they don't want to allow members to load their stored pictures onto another website. They want members to SEND people to flcikr to look at your pictures there.

That way they (and other photo sites) can claim higher numbers of visitors and charge more for their ads.

You can include a LINK to your photo here or follow the steps to upload your pictures to our free storage space.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 06/05/10 06:52 AM

OK John, I tried to upload photos to the storage space here with no success; photos too large; how do I reduce the size?

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 06/05/10 09:24 PM

You don't have ANY photo editing software?

http://www.irfanview.com/

Here's a free one. Or check on Google's Picassa, also free.

The software that came with your digital camera may be able to resize the images.

Or you may be able to resize the images at Flickr and download the smaller size ones.

After looking at a map, It was Port Weller that I was thinking of. It is at the north end/low end of the Welland canal, on Lake Ontario. Probably not right either. Port Dalhousie is just west of there.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 06/22/10 04:09 PM

OH there really is a Port Dalhousie? I'm sorry I thought you were making a funny (Port Da-Light-House-ie).

But no that still isn't it. An no Port Weller isn't either.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 06/24/10 07:54 PM

You got it Paul! Well, Race Rock, NY. I will put a couple pictures up this evening. You can see this one from land, but its so much better up close! We went out on a fishing boat and as the captain said -"We cozyed (how do you spell that?) up to the lighthouses." Nancy likes to say we cozyed up to a rock, a reef, a ledge and a dumpling. wink
John, it would be great if Cedar Island got a metal roof. Thats what they are working toward. Oops, that reminds me, I need to send Bob the check for the pins.
Posted By: WackoPaul

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 06/24/10 10:20 PM

My image of Race Rock was shot from a Ferry from the Groton area to Long Island, it barely qualifies as seeing it.. I am power washing the deck (on a break), will put up the next light after I finish.. After my hands quit vibrating!!

That light has been visited by the Bradys often.. I have shot images of it during every season and weather condition over the years and the rocks and the base are dead give-aways to me..



My son, Chad shot this image of Jeff and me in 2003 at Marblehead when our club went on a Dave H bus/boat tour of Ohio Lighthouses..

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 06/25/10 04:26 PM

The windows and doorway are different in your picture. I thought the unpainted brick didn't look quite right and did not remember it from years ago. That's one heck of a camera you have there Paul, and Jeff is wearing two cameras...serious lighthousing!

Posted By: wvlights0

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 07/08/10 09:27 PM

When Nancy and I were there, the ferries to the island weren't starting until June 26th. We got lucky while looking for a spot to see Sheffield and Greens Ledge from, and a local resident took us to a lovely little private park on a point where we could see them both very clearly. A lady was sitting there painting a picture of Greens Ledge, and as she heard us talking she asked the name of the lighthouse, checked the spelling, and added it to her painting. Sheffield Island is extremely small, but we could see people there. We looked around a little farther, and there was Pecks Ledge! That part of the country is fantastic for all the lighthouses. Multiple places where we could stand in one spot and see up to 5 lights.

This was my 1st attempt at aerial photography(November 2000). I was in the back seat with an inexperienced pilot, jumping side to side trying to get photo with a limited camera. The guy in the front seat had his camera jam on his first shot. I kissed the ground when I got back. I was so dizzy trying to look through the viewfinder.

I've been to Latimer several times since. And very close, once with Bill Younger.

They changed the top of the chimneys. The porches were a wreck. I thought the only thing in good shape at that time was athe fresnel and the tower.We was there 6 30 2010. The restoration person had just moved onsight.

The Forum members gave some help to the restoration.

Wow, how did you ever figure it out, Bob?



Hudson-Athens Lighthouse Lighthouse..

It was quite an adventure, our cruise ship was landing at the small dock for the first time, ever.. The ship was at least 4 times as long as the dock..





The Captain's one son/crew member, took an unscheduled swim attempting to get us tied off to the lighthouse.. The Hudson water's were very cold, he said.

I knew the first pictures made me think of Washington state. The wall angles in the door picture kept throwing me off. I still can't find a picture that matches that, but I am pretty sure it is West Point, WA.

I need to start studying Washington, British Columbia and Alaska lights. Ordered a few books last night.

Posting a photo is not that big a deal. Please search Paul, Dave and John's posts on "how to". I know you have plenty of photos we'd love to see!
I know you can do it.
Give it a try?
In the meantime send me a few and I'll post them.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 07/26/10 06:31 PM

This what Blanco lighthouse looked like when we pulled up to the parking area on our visit in 2002..



After walking down the hill from the parking area and up the next hill to the light, this is what it looked like..



I was real glad I made the walk over to the lighthouse as a lot of people were pulling up to the parking area and just leaving.. I could tell looking at the water that the sun was shining on the other side of the patch of fog..

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 07/26/10 06:43 PM

Great picture Paul. You do seem to be lucky with the blue skies. The gates were closed the day we were there. I tried to get out of the car but I think it was blowing harder there than at Point Reyes...plus the rain! It was gorgeous lit though. A couple days earlier we saw it from the air

Cove Point, MD a classic John Donahoo tower.

John Donahoo also built Point Lookout. This might have something to do with the lanterns looking similar.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/13/10 08:47 PM

I knew it was familiar to me, it just didn't ring a bell. As a matter of fact it is the last Chesapeake light we have visited, probably for the 5th time..
Posted By: wvlights0

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/13/10 09:51 PM

You got it Eric. I could only take pictures from the gate. I still need to see Point Lookout...and a few more Maryland lights.

I like when a builders name is still known after so many years, and for good reasons!

Edited to add: I forgot to mention...the dangerous neighborhood: a nuclear power plant and an Liquid Natural Gas facility nearby. Lots of homes also.

Part of the keepers job is to stir the water with the oar every day. Water is extremely limited here. For a shower you get a bag to lay in the sun. On a sunny day you get a warm shower, on a cloudy day...well, not so warm. Then you hang the bag in the outdoor shower and gravity does the rest. I won't even go into the counting that is done before flushing the toilet.

It is like seeing all those pictures of St. Simons Island with the house in front. When we were there back in '08, a man told me that if I walked down the sidewalk I could eventually see the lighthouse w/o the house or wires. Got a pretty good shot.

Just kidding, Laura I will survive as I am getting things ready for a major change in the Brady household.. I finally convinced Sue to get rid of her PC and go Mac!!! We will be an all Mac family after all these years.. She had a PC at home because she had PC at her work..

A great thing about her being a retired Professor Emeritus, she gets all of her programs free from the University bookstore.. That includes all Microsoft, Adobe, and other major software contracts that are held by the University..

We will have to have a program on her computer that will let us run a PC educational game for the girls that they don't offer for a Mac.. So I guess Sue won't have total PC withdrawal..

LOL I just don't have all my lighthouse pictures on my computer at work. I email them to myself when I know I will need to put them up during the day. I guess I need to build myself a stash.
Sounds like a great deal on the programs. I hope the switch goes well. They gave me a new computer here at work and installed Windows 7, while everything else in the office was Windows XP. I went crazy for 2 months until they gave up and switched me back. Anything that required the network - like printing - did not work well. Hopefully things will go better for Sue.
At the moment I am very pleased with myself. Just made reservations at Calico Jack's for Labor Day weekend.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/26/10 03:14 AM

More specifically, the south tower. The bi valve lens is also from the south tower. It is mounted in a building behind the two towers and slowly revolves. It is beautiful.

South tower


North tower from the South tower


and both!

We have been there a couple of times, I just didn't remember all of the bars.. Did remember the beautiful Fresnel housed in the brick generator building..

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/26/10 03:54 AM

No, I didn't know what the other building was. I figured you must have been there. I was expecting your pictures of Navesink with blue skies! laugh I was glad to have the weather we had. The Nor'easter didn't cause nearly the problems we expected.

There is a small clue in this image..
Posted By: wvlights0

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/26/10 04:05 PM

It looks like it might say something on the headboard...hopefully the potty chair is not the clue. I think the wood is oak, though the color looks like pine. No idea where you are, but I think you are likely in the Great Lakes.
( Who is that guy? I think he's stalking you Paul...he's been in other pictures of yours. wink )

I knew I could count on you! I was curious about the bars...but they are in your pictures also. I thought they might be something newer. As for your mystery light, I think I need 'The Book.'

October 2001...you could probably still see smoke from the towers.

Posted By: wvlights0

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/27/10 01:45 PM

lgthouselady, don't compare your pictures to Paul's. He's a professional. I know mine aren't as good, but they are getting better. Suggestions? Get as many pixels as you can, get a long lens if you can. Mostly just take LOTS of pictures of LOTS of lighthouses and have fun!
MG I offered before to help you with posting pictures and the offer still stands. It takes some time to get the hang of it.
I finally got into 'The Book' this morning...and thanks to MG's clue... I finally found it. Pottawatomie or Rock Island, WI.
Posted By: WackoPaul

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/27/10 02:04 PM

Yes it is, here is mine from the same year of 2005 and as you can see Pottawatomie was the lighthouse we were supporting in 2005... JJ had his on even though it was 2007 when the group visited the light during the Regional because of the special day of having all of the Wackos there with Bill and Harry. Bill presented JJ 'with a t' (Jim Johnston) with an AP of the LLOM at the lighthouse since the LE hadn't been produced yet..

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/27/10 11:34 PM

Laura said it was a Poe light..

Orlando Metcalfe Poe

Quote:
In Summer 1865 Poe became the Lighthouse Board's chief engineer; in 1870 he was promoted to the position of Chief Engineer of the Upper Great Lakes 11th Lighthouse District. In this capacity he designed eight "Poe style lighthouses" and oversaw construction of several. Poe was named District Engineer for the Eleventh Lighthouse District,

Posted By: wvlights0

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/29/10 01:41 AM

Actually we have done Cape San Blas before, and Cape May. I made a list awhile back, I haven't updated it lately. My list ends with Sand Point MI. At that point we had done 157 lights with 8 duplicates. Thats a lot of lighthouses! In my opinion, if the lighthouse is presented differently, as these last two were, I don't think its a problem. Except for the fact that you can't eliminate that light as a possibility.
Posted By: Weasel58

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/29/10 02:42 AM

Laura, good idea, I need to go back trough here and make up a list. Now that I',m looking back I see Shortcake posted Cape San Blas back May. I was the one who guessed. :rolleyes:
Posted By: WackoPaul

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/29/10 02:48 AM

That's strange because I did a word search for Cape May in the Games Forum before I posted and nothing showed up..

Any guesses on the new mystery light?
Posted By: wvlights0

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/29/10 02:52 AM

Doing a search doesn't work too well, because of all the guesses. Thats why I did the list. I ought to put it in a spreadsheet that can be sorted, its just hand written now. We have had sooo many lighthouses in here, its hard to keep track.
I have put Cape May up before, but from an entirely different angle. I obviously had no idea which light Paul was using. Same deal with your beginning on Cape San Blas. It may be getting to where its very difficult not to repeat.
Posted By: WackoPaul

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/29/10 03:02 AM

A search should find a guess or the light and my search found no use of Cape May either way.. I may need to do a rebuild of the data base for just the games Forum if I can.. I don't want to rebuild all of the Forums because that could shut it down for hours..
Posted By: Weasel58

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 08/31/10 03:54 AM

Thats correct. We saw this lighthouse, along with 15 others on a boat trip sponsored by NELL, Friends of Pomham Rocks, and Save the Bay. The narrator wanted to show everyone what this lighthouse looked like when it still had its lantern...so he pulled out that Harbour Lights model! I think he used 5 or 6 Harbour Lights on the trip. It was especially effective when we were looking at a foundation, like Bullocks Points or Mussell Bed Shoals.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 09/04/10 03:41 AM

Actually Mark, the 3 times before that trip and the next time after it, it was raining when we stopped at White River Lighthouse... That image was shot in 2004..

I even went twice to the lighthouse, with Bill Younger, for one of our Bill in front of the lighthouse holding the lighthouse shots and it rained both time..

You are correct Nancy!! It is Mackinac Point Lighthouse with the Mackinac Bridge in the background and the gateway to Mackinac Island the home of the 2005 Harbour Lights Reunion..



Did anybody noticed that it's a small plane that's flying over the roof of the lantern room not a bird?

You are both correct. This lighthouse is the most famous and the oldest lighthouse in it's country.

Here are the stairs up to the lantern. If you look under the stairs you can see an open door that leads outside. Where the previous photos were taken. This is the highest level open to tourist.



In this photo look for the archway with a red door inside. This is the door that you see from the inside in the previous shot.

Eric, did they tell you or show you which are the REALLY old parts?
Posted By: Weasel58

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 09/07/10 11:28 PM

Laura,

The docents escort you in groups up the tower. The photo of the lens is in the lower vault of the tower. We stopped there first and were told about the history of the tower and that this area was used to store the coal they were burning in the open fire at the top of the tower.
The next two levels were the living areas. The docent told us about the monks and others who had kept the light over the years. The top of the wide part of the light is as high as tourists can go. The wide part of the tower dates from the 13th century. The smaller diameter part of the light above this point dates from the 19th century.

Here is the Irish Lighthouse Commision's page on Hook Head.

Re: Mystery Lighthouse DIGITAL - 09/13/10 10:48 PM

Stan, we only found that lighthouse because we saw a tourist map in the gift shop at the Golden Gate Bridge. It was not in our book. We were just beginners at lighthousing back then. I seem to like finding the little known/forgotten lighthouses. It is amazing to me that anyone would leave something to deteriorate like that at the foot of that bridge. Maybe that's a compromise...some people want to tear it down..some people want to restore it.
Who knows.

Oh No? You missed the boat? OK, I will fall on my sword. Cape Lookout NC. I love that place. You should see the shells I brought home last week. Actually, you would be amazed at what we left behind! Hurricane Earl delivered hundreds of whelks, conchs and even helmet shells to the island. If you take the truck out to the end of the island you can sometimes have the place to yourself. I counted...11 people came out to the end from 9:30 to about 4 Saturday, the 11th. I will put a new mystery light up this evening and some pics of Lookouts new railing. Great to finally climb this guy.

You got it! Our water taxi captain - out of Port Washington - has been to the lighthouse. I asked if he thought the stories of the British tying prisoners to the rocks and letting the tide drown them was true. He said the old timers still talk about finding manacles there. He had a great story about Fire Island lighthouse saving his life when he was a kid - on a boat lost in the fog and trying to find the inlet.

No lesson did not happen - no time, so I guess I'll just have to pass on playing!
