Another lighthouse jaunt for us! The Beautiful twin lighthouses of Navasink. Up a windy road. The view from on top of the area was gorgeous. The view from the top of the lighthouses, even better! Nice landmark.

It’s a beautiful place with two historic lighthouses. Beautiful view of the ocean. Lots of shade to sit and be comfortable even on a hot day. Small interesting museum. Convenient parking.

We traveled the Navasink River and saw the historic twin lights. It’s a nice landmark to happen upon on a boat ride.
