Just a shot in the dark. The copper roof is what gave me an inkling of what it may have been.

MG you got it right. My sister and I really felt like we accomplished something getting to this one. COLD! Wind blowing so hard you walked bent over.
I have had trouble posting pictures too. Give it a try and people will help out. I noticed you have no avatar and am assuming that is the problem.

"And the 3rd Order fresnel lens in the honeycomb lantern room." A Must see at night! One of the most impressive lights I've ever seen.

After diner we took a night run to Point Cabrillo.


Point Cabrillo at night - BRILLIANT!

The beams from this light can hardly be shown. This bright light shown the way in the'pitch black' night. I wish I had my video camera. One of the most impressive lights I've ever seen at night! 'OUTRAGEOUS'

Ooohh...tough one. First one I found was Boston, but its rubblestone and I can see brick in your picture. Cannot find a brick tower with the corbel detail under the deck and no brackets.

Closest I can find is Ocracoke, slight corbel, but its not right.

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.

I cannot find a closeup of the edge of the roof, but I think it might be Wisconsin Point.

My sister just pointed out that the portholes and mullions of the lantern windows don't match. It is not Wisconsin Point.

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.

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

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.
