I like Lighthouses

So I love West Chop. You can get really up close and personal. We were 'Off Season' so no access issues. Park outside, get out the camera and soak it all up

The bike loop to West Chop Lighthouse was stunningly beautiful. Do not miss it. In a charming community with a family feel.

There is a picket fence and several "no parking" signs. The light house itself is pretty and interesting but can only be viewed from the street if walking by or driving by very slowly.

Nothing like other lighthouses in terms of magnitude, but you can get close enough to examine, but not too close.

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.

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.
