Lighthouses

Lighthouses are pretty cool looking, and I've always enjoyed going to different ones. I live in an area with quite a few and we see some others when we vacation on the Outer Banks. I've tried to group the different pictures by area because the styles are similar. The Eastern Seaboard lighthouses are ordered from north to south, while the Great Lakes and Chesapeake Bay ones are listed in the order I visited them. At the bottom are a few miscellaneous lighthouses I've been to.
