Long Beach Island Barnegat Lighthouse

Here's Max at the Barnegat Lighthouse on Long Beach Island off the coast of New Jersey. It happens to be a warm (50 degrees) day so that the twins could go out on the walkway to the lighthouse.

Rex is at the moment inside the lighthouse climbing the stairs to the top:

He's stopped a moment to see how far he's come. "Awful lot of stairs," says Rex.

Here's some info about the Barnegat Lighthouse
There are 217 steps that lead to the light. From there you can see a long ways on a clear day. If you are familiar with this area of the Jersey shore and have never seen the area from up high, the view from the lighthouse will be even more special. In all areas of the lighthouse you will find interpretive signs that discuss the history and role of lighthouses, in addition to specific details about the Barnegat Lighthouse itself.
