Point Pinos Lighthouse

Here're a few pics
of a favorite local site:
Point Pinos Lighthouse

This is the oldest operating lighthouse
on the west coast.
It is on the point of land
that sticks out from
the southern end of 
Monterey Bay,
part of what is called
the Monterey Peninsula;
and it is in the middle of
the Pacific Grove Golf Links.

Point Pinos Lighthouse
began operation
in 1855.

The inside is also beautifully
maintained, containing many
historical items of interest,
and showing the living conditions
of former caretakers.

These photos were taken on 13 May 2011.
