Nice pictures

There's not too much to say about that lighthouse because the only thing you can do is take pictures. But anyway, the pictures are amazing.

My wife and I were on a Fall Foliage tour and saw this lighthouse from the ferry we were taking to Martha's Vineyard. I love lighthouses so I enjoyed seeing it from the ferry.

This lighthouse is at the tip of one of the Chops and the first one you see when traveling to the Vineyard.

This Lighthouse is a Private Residence. You cannot approach the Lighthouse, but can only take a view from outside the picket fence near the road. You can still find a great perspective and take a photo for your collection. There is little or no parking close by, so be careful where you park and walking on the road.

The West Chop Lighthouse can only be experienced form the street. There is a white picket fence with No Trespass signs because it is a private residence. It would have been nice to be able to see the harbor from the back of the property, but not allowed.

This was another requested stop on our tour, but the lighthouse was not open when we were there. Still it was a great photo op on a beautiful day at a beautiful location.

I was not able to visit this lighthouse on the island, but was able to get a nice picture and view of it from the Island Queen ferry. If you are on the ferry, it is visible from the right (starboard) side.

We were on a tour with Martha's Vineyard Private Tours & Excursions. Our driver Jim got us a great vantage point for the photo, which is a bit of a chore since the light is on private property.
