Black and White Sunday: An eerie Lighthouse

It looks more like a haunted house, but this defunct historic lighthouse sits on a beach in The Hamptons, Long Island New York.  The super narrow stretch of beach juts way out into the ocean.  As the tides ebb and flow at many times the tiny stretch of beach between the lighthouse and the land is underwater! 

Cedar Island Lighthouse, whose light has been removed for restoration, is located in Cedar Point Beach, East Hampton, NY.

    1. It's a great place for dogs but there are a lot of restrictions on beach access, otherwise it's pretty dog friendly! Thanks for stopping by today!

  2. Wow, that looks pretty ominous in B&W! That's amazing it has held up so well with the tide surrounding it and everything.

    1. I know right!? It's so spooky in Black & White! I can't believe it's still standing and in reasonably good conditions given the salt water & air, waves, high tides, etc. Thanks for stopping by today Jen!
