Here is an outside view of the repaired Fresnel Lens bullseye. I had to lean way out with my arm extended for these shots! Good thing I'm not afraid of heights!
A scenic view of the Town of Jupiter and the Jupiter Inlet Waterway.
This was an interesting shot. I tried to take a picture of the inside of the lantern room from the outside, but the reflection of the glass made it look like I was on the inside looking out!
The gear that drives the lens.
A cool shot of one of the portholes looking towards the inlet and the ocean.
Another shot of the gear.
Looking up into the lantern room. It's huge, you'd never think how big it is unless you see it in person. The tennis balls are so people don't nail their heads on the sharp edges.
The oil house has been turned into a museum. It houses alot of cool info and is nice and air conditioned for after the hot trip up and down the stairs of the lighthouse!
