I Shall Give You Light!

Sandy Hook Light

Sandy Hook Light

What’s the difference between a lighthouse keeper and a jeweler?

One watches seas, and the other sees watches.

Interesting Fact: The light was built to aid mariners entering the southern end of the New York Harbor. It was originally called New York Lighthouse because it was funded through a New York Assembly lottery and a tax on all ships entering the Port of New York. The lighthouse has endured an attempt to destroy it as an aid to British navigation by Benjamin Tupper,[5] and a subsequent occupancy of British soldiers during the Revolutionary War.  ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Hook_Light )

  1. I probably have a photograph of this lighthouse somewhere, from many years ago. I used to live not too far from Sandy Hook, NJ.

    • That is so awesome, I pass by there at list once a year to check out the birds and enjoy the beach. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
