Visit Inside the Lighthouse



Visit Inside the Lighthouse



newcastle lighthouse in portsmouth harbor


I did a post a few weeks ago about the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse.

I am very excited to say that I had a visit from a volunteer for the lighthouse group that cares for it.

Ross, over at Friends of Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse wrote to say that the light house will be open during certain times over the summer for tours and visits.

You can actually climb to the top of the lighthouse and view the fourth-order Fresnel lens up close in the Lantern Room.

They have scheduled 11 days this summer for tours, and you can bet that I will be there for one of them - with my camera and a new memory card in hand!.

  3. That is awesome that you got a comment from the volunteer. Don't you love it when you write about something and they like it? Yay!

  4. Oh wow, I would be all over that tour as well!! We just don't have lighthouses here and to actually go into one, that's pretty special.
    I am looking forward to those photos for sure!!
