An interesting and still important lighthouse that can be visited but not climbed. (NOTE: The lighthouse is currently under construction, and is expected to re-open in summer 2013, with the ability to be climbed for the first time)

Nice grounds. Lighthouse and keepers house. Admission charged if you climb. High winds. And lateness of the day prevented us from climbing the first day. Next day, couldn't wait for the next time slots. (Tight schedule) .
