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!

I love it - great shots and perspectives. Lighthouses are one of the things I miss about living near the ocean.

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!!

Oh, my, this is quite a light house! Great views from the top! I've had my first experience, the spiral stairs, and the steepness. It was well worth it!

I definitely enjoyed these shots... the lighthouse is beautiful & oh so tall... it looks higher looking down than looking up... isn't that funny! =)

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.

There is something special about being able to visit a lighthouse and imaging the lives of those who tended it.
