Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse

You would think that there would be lighthouses all over the place in Florida. When actually we needed to drive an hour down the coast to find the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse. Sitting on the Jupiter Inlet along the Loxahatchee and Indian Rivers since 1860 it is still in service today. (I'll let you read the sign yourself). The tower is 108 feet tall and there are 105 steps up to the light. The one lens was damaged in a powerful hurricane in 1928. The Keeper had it sent away to be fixed and it is sill in use.
