Cape Henry Lighthouse

  Recently, I have found out I will most likely be moving in June, and so I have been playing tourist and visiting any sites I haven't seen in the Virginia Beach area, and going back to some I haven't visited in awhile. This week, I went to climb the Cape Henry Lighthouse. I love lighthouses, but for some reason never made the effort to visit this one, even though it is only about 5 minutes away from my house. The light house is actually located inside an active military base, but access is maintained for the public to visit this historic site.

The first 54 steps, to get to the top I had to climb 191 total, and my legs definitely felt it the next day.

View from the top of the old light house, looking towards the new one. The views from the top were beautiful, looking North and South along the Atlantic coast, and even into the Chesapeake Bay.
