This past weekend I had the urge to go on a little adventure; I wanted to drive along the coast, and explore a place I’ve never been to. So I chose to visit Pigeon Point Lighthouse in Pescadero, Ca. Although it’s late July, it was very foggy & chilly (just along the coast), as soon as you go a few miles inland it’s sunny and a lot warmer, but this is typical in Northern California.
This lighthouse was built in 1871, and is the tallest on the West Coast. (so cool!)
The actual lighthouse is unfortunately closed- due to it’s bad condition. There’s corroded iron- and it is not safe for people to be inside anymore. But the light station is open to the public and has the actual light from the lighthouse inside (shown above). Hopefully one day they can restore and reopen it to the public.
If you’re a fan of lighthouses- I recommend seeing this one. The views are spectacular- I can only imagine what it looks like on a clear day. I love exploring more of my state, especially the coast. I have a goal to see every lighthouse in California- and I’m glad I can check this off my list.
