The lighthouse is small and can only handle a small group at a time, but re-enactors that play the part of lighthouse assistants and home makers make the wait well worth it. Great educational stop for kids!

We have visited many times, but this visit had exceptionally good docents working! They told the great stories of the lighthouse! It is wonderfully maintained and decorated in period pieces! Worth the trip!

Lighthouse is a great spot to visit. Make sure you check out the tide pools - we viewed at low tide and were amazed at the sea life we were able to see. Well worth the stop.

The baby cormorants filled the rock surface. Several duck species were feeding in the rough waters near the rocks. A mother and young gray whale were feeding close enough to shore that we could see their backs roll the surface when we spotted the spouted water from their blow hole.

Look around in the fields at the diversity of plants in this habitat of wind and tides. I was delighted by the English Mountain Daisies blooming in the early Spring.

Several of my friends went inside the lighthouse and climbed the spiral stairs to the top. Upon descending, they were given a pin to announce their accomplishment.

The lighthouse is very picturesque architecture.
