Ponce de Leon Lighthouse

(Photo taken from Lighthouse Point Park)

Recently, while on Vaccation - over Spring Break - we visited the Ponce de Leon Lighthouse. After spending some time at the Lighthouse Point Park, we drove a few miles up where we toured the Lighthouse and the Home Place of the past keepers.  We climbed 203 steps (175 feet) to the top, where we wittnessed the most amazing view, over looking the land and the Sea.
If you're ever in the area, stop by!! I promise, it will be worth your time!!
