Pensacola Lighthouse

When Gerred and I returned from Disney World we still had a week left of me visiting for Winter Break. So he drove the 9 hours from Orlando to where he is stationed in Pensacola, FL. There we met up with Katie and Phoenix again and decided to see the Pensacola Lighthouse on base.

I have a thing for lighthouses. Not like a "collecting" thing, but I sure do make it a point to explore them. I've been to a few in North Carolina and to at least 2 or 3 in Maryland. But I hope to see more in my day. The Pensacola one, was a nice big one and the house below was kept up really well. In fact, some say it's haunted. We got to watch a ghost hunters episode in the basement of the lighthouse that had the people from the show explore it. 

On my trip I didn't see any ghosts, just 177 steps I had to climb of a spiral staircase to the very top of the lighthouse. Which to me is just as terrifying as ghosts. But when I got to the top, it was great to look out at the beach and the entire Navy base from way up high.

Does anyone else like exploring lighthouses?


  1. Wow this is gorgeous! Love the pictures. :)

  2. I love exploring lighthouses, even though I'm terrified of heights. So far I've been to the St. Augustine and Ponce Inlet lighthouses in Florida
