SQUARE TOPS – Looking at the Top – Ponce Lighthouse

Today, I present to you the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse at the Ponce Inlet near New Smyrna Beach, Florida between St. Augustine and Cape Canaveral. This cylinder lighthouse is the tallest in Florida at 175 feet high and the second tallest in the United States behind the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in North Carolina. It is equipped with a Third Order Fresnel lens and shines out 17 nautical miles (32 kilometers or 20 miles). For a small fee, visitors are able to climb to the top of this lighthouse and explore the museum that houses the keepers dwellings and Lens Exhibit building.

  1. I used to love photographing lighthouses. I put them up on Flickr and they started attracting attention. Would you believe there are groups up there solely dedicated to photographs of lighthouses from around the world?

    • I would believe it. I love them. I was a fanatic about 15 years ago. I got rid of a lot of the lighthouse decor but still have quite a bit. Birds have been my hobby for years too and more so now. One day, when we can travel, I’d like to visit every lighthouse in the US. Not sure that will ever get checked off my bucket list. 😊
