Project 365 2.0: March 28, 2012 | Day 119

This is the 248-year-old lighthouse in Sandy Hook, NJ. It is small (only 103 ft tall) but it is the oldest working lighthouse in the US. My classroom shares the same parking lot as the lighthouse, so I see this every Wednesday. A few people in my oceanography class have gone up it but I have not- I have a terrible fear of heights so I am a little hesitant. I should though, because they say there's a really nice view where you can see the end of Sandy Hook. The most interesting fact I think is that when it was built in 1764, it stood 500 ft from the tip of the shore and the end of Sandy Hook. Now, due to sand buildup and growth, it stands 1.5 miles inland.
