The only bird we saw was a goose which was a teaser at the entrance, after that a lighthouse under renovation and a small island too far off to see the birds on it. Felt ripped off.

The lighthouse was undergoing renovations, but this was still a wonderful place to go. The plants, birds and historian at the station by the lighthouse offers plenty to see and learn. There were telescopes to view the coast from several angles. Many varieties of birds to view, a gift shop, exhibits of the history of the lighthouse, and a fantastic view.

It was a bit disappointing to make the long trek up the hill to see the lighthouse, only to find it almost completely wrapped in a tarp, undergoing renovations. However, the beautiful view almost made up for it. Lots of wildlife around too.

We stopped here on our first day out exploring. It was a nice drive and scenic walk, although the lighthouse is under renovation and the photo op was just not there. But looking out along the cliffs,it was scenic, we saw a sea turtle and a seal. If they have to charge, maybe $5 a car load, although for my husband and I, it was worth $10.
