For the past 150 years the lighthouse in Pensacola has served as a beacon for those coming in by sea and a compass for anyone near the beach.
It's a beautiful lighthouse and I knew I wanted to see it while we were camping at Pensacola NAS.
We went Sunday afternoon and unfortunately it was closed so we weren't able to go inside. I'm going to plan a trip back on a day when it is open so we can go inside and explore the house and light.
My kids really want to climb to the top.
But on this day, we wandered the grounds
Played a little
Enjoyed the view
And spent some time on the porch, catching up with an old friend.
It was a great visit and I'm definitely looking forward to coming back and exploring inside.
