Lighthouse & Chincoteague Island, Virginia

These are some scenes from Chincoteague Island Virginia and the Assateague National Seashore for my Scenic Sunday  post. To see more scenic shots from around the world click on my link.






The view from the top of the lighthouse. There were free climbs to the top celebrating  the 144th  birthday of the lighthouse.


This shot above you can see the wildlife drive and the Atlantic Ocean.



I hope you enjoyed my views of the Assateague Lighthouse on the Chincoteague NWR. To see more beautiful scenes from around the world check out Scenic Sunday.  Thanks to the host of Scenic Sunday and also thank you for stopping by to see my Scenic post. Have a great weekend!

  2. It sure doesn't look like it's 144!! I'd have been glad of the railing if I'd made it to the top - great view, but also great vertigo opportunity!!

  14. In New Zealand, many light house are computerized. But they are useless if sailors ignore signs and charts as is happening to our Rena disaster.
