Spring Point Ledge Light

Here is another view of the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse with more of the breakwater in the composition.  This is such a beautiful place to be at sunrise, and I can imagine how much the past keepers of the lighthouse must’ve appreciated their view.  Especially once the breakwater was built, and they weren’t as stranded as when the tower stood alone at the entrance to the harbor.  And here’s a random fact for you:  someone once figured out that in order to get some exercise at the lighthouse prior to having the breakwater, the keeper would need to run 56 laps around the tower’s main deck to equal one mile.  I wonder which would happen first when running those laps – dizziness, exhaustion, or boredom.  Or perhaps all of the above?
