We then set out to do one of Lynnie's favorite things, tour a lighthouse. There's one on Tybee Island, about fifteen miles from here. It is the third one built on the site, the existing structure dates from prior to the "Civil" War
We then climbed the one hundred and seventy six stairs to the top of the lighthouse itself. Going up wasn't so bad, since we both are in decent shape a do a lot of walking. The view from the top, which is a windy spot, was great. I've included two videos from there, the second of which is difficult to hear due to the wind noise. My apologies for that. It's the tallest lighthouse in Georgia and one of the few that is open to the public. We had a great time there. We took a few minutes to visit the simple museum and watch a short video about the area. All in all it's a fun place to visit. Oh, coming down the multitudinous stairs? Not easy. It didn't take me long to realize how much it affected my quads. Much like running hills or running a long race. Fatigue was the word my muscles screamed at me. It wasn't long though before they recovered, but I can still feel it. A great memory that I'll probably have for a few days.
And then we moved on to Fort Pulaski...
