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?
