St. Augustine Lighthouse, Florida

I went to see the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum in St. Augustine, Florida this past weekend. The current  lighthouse was completed in 1874.  It rises 165 feet above sea level and contains 219 steps. There is  a first order Fresnel lens that serves the beacon. This was an active lighthouse until 1955. Here’s a couple of photos I took while there.
