Did you know that high winds are a factor when you visit a lighthouse? On this day, May 9, 2007, we were only allowed to step out on the top platform a few visitors at a time. We were NOT allowed to circle the top due to 55 mph winds. This doesn’t sound like too much, but apparently it is, and a guard was posted to enforce this restriction. It was frustrating to me, though some chose not to venture outside at all!

The St. Augustine Lighthouse was built in Florida in 1874.
