September is a gorgeous time of the year for BI. The walk to the lighthouse is long but the scenario is worth it. We saw 8 sea lions playing in the shallows 3/4 of the way to the light house. Just beautiful.

We always visit the North Shore on our last day. We skip rocks and collect a few little ones to take home as souvenirs. We take a walk towards the lighthouse, sometimes walking the whole way, sometimes not. Even with many people there we find...More

It is a little bit of a longer bike ride to get here and once the pavement ends it is a half mile walk to the lighthouse itself. I wouldn't recommend it for someone with a walker or crutches but we really enjoyed our visit....More
