From childhood, growing up near the Thirty Mile Point Lighthouse in Barker, NY, I have been drawn to the architectural form of the lighthouse. It was bound to happen that I would, when walking around the Ponce Inlet Light, climb as high as they allowed. The Ponce Inlet Lighthouse is the second tallest lighthouse in the United States. Looking up, the view intrigued me. As beautiful as the view from the top was, this drew me in.
