It's been a fantasy of mine to actually experience the climb and walk on to the catwalk at the top of a lighthouse. On a cruise with the Bath Maritime Museum that goal mine was enjoyed here. Absolutely amazing! Will be going back.

Took the boat to Seguin on a beautiful day. Tied up on one of the moorings and explored the island. Beautiful vistas and easy walking terrain. Pack a lunch and go.
