Favorite Lighthouses on the East Coast

During my road trip across the USA many years ago, I visited several lighthouses.  Listed below are a few of my favorite lighthouses on the East Coast.

History of Sodus Point

The Sodus Bay Lighthouse is located in Sodus Point Beach Park.  Technically, it is not on the East Coast as it directs boat traffic in Sodus Bay on Lake Ontario.  Due to the surrounding area’s history, however, I could not leave it out.  And it is this history that made in one of my favorite lighthouses as I drove the Seaway Trail along Lake Ontario.

Day 74 – North Carolina’s Outer Banks Part 2

Day 74 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

I survived staying at a complete stranger’s house.  I stayed in Ted’s driveway a couple of nights, but this was the first time of my 74 day trip (or for that matter ever) for me to borrow a stranger’s extra bedroom.  I figured with my dogs, bear mace, and a 38 special I could handle a man whose hip was shattered by an M16 shot from three feet away.  

Seriously, we talked about Frank’s army days, grown kids, and ex-wife enough for me to feel comfortable.  And he even showed me his driver’s license so I could text a friend the name of my would be killer if my friend didn’t hear from me the next day!
