Tuesday Tidbits #134 More Lighthouses!

How was your 4th?

I sure hope you had a lovely and very safe Holiday! We had an amazing Fireworks Display here in Edinboro, Pennsylvania …down at the University. It lasted 25 minutes or so with a few Finales!

Several Days of Celebrating

Family came to visit so we went exploring. We found 2 more Lighthouses! One was in Erie, Pennsylvania called Erie Land Lighthouse and the other was near Westfield, New York called Barcelona Lighthouse .

Barcelona Lighthouse. Established in 1823 in Westfield, NY.
The Barcelona is made of Fieldstone.
The Barcelona is closed to the public except for looking up at ground level. These stairs are the originals made of wood.
The Barcelona is not a working Lighthouse but it has beautiful lake views!

Erie Land Lighthouse

I had been wanting to see the The Erie Land Lighthouse on the shores of Lake Erie in Erie, Pennsylvania. So… since we were headed back home and in the area… we searched and found it. (Thank you Google!) Now I can say I have seen all 3 Lighthouses in the Erie area.

Erie Land Lighthouse located in Erie, Pennsylvania. Established in 1867.

We were able to climb the stairs to the top of this one.

The stairs going up!
Almost to the top!
The yellow is a reminder to duck your head or be careful!

The view at the top was incredible!

Last summer we visited the other Lighthouse in Erie called Presque Isle Lighthouse and you are able to read all about it here.

North Pier Lighthouse

The third Erie Lighthouse is called North Pier Lighthouse. I did not write a blog post of it but I do have a picture of it to share with you.

Erie Harbor North Pier Lighthouse. Established in 1858 and it still helps light the way for Mariners in the narrow bay.

Wishing all of you a wonderful week. Thanks to all for following along. I truly appreciate each of you.

  1. Nancy, I love lighthouses! Wow, those wooden stairs must be old. We have two lighthouses within ten minutes of us. There are two more Georgia lighthouses within a hundred miles of us. Happy Tuesday!

    1. There’s just something about a lighthouse! And we have enjoyed finding them this summer.
      I am so glad you enjoyed.
      Happy Tuesday to you as well. Have a lovely week my friend.

    1. Thank you Jenna! I agree. Would love to know the stories!
      Glad you had a wonderful 4th!
      Happy Tuesday dear friend!

  2. Nancy, I love lighthouses and the Lake Erie ones are all wonderful. You and Sweet Man are always exploring and finding fun and interesting places to visit! I do believe you both enjoy each day to the fullest!

    Happy Tuesday, my friend!

    1. Thank you for the visit! I’m so glad you enjoyed the Lighthouses. They are quite fun… especially if you can climb to the top.
      Hope you get to travel… Happy Tuesday!

  3. I would love to visit some of those lighthouses. They are so interesting architecturally and play such an important part in our history. I’ve only been on the Great Lakes once. We hauled our sailboat there (from NM) when we first got it. It was an exciting and eyeopening trip. Sadly we have not done much sailing in recent years as the water levels in the lakes in NM are so low.

    1. Oh how I wish we could pipe some of this rain from here in the East to the Southwest where it’s so desperately needed.
      Lighthouses have a certain ambiance…
      Thanks for the visit my friend.

  4. The view of Lake Eerie from the lighthouse is breathtaking! I’m glad you had a nice 4th. We had such beautiful weather! Perfect for watching fireworks.

  5. I can’t resist a lighthouse! That stairway iron work is gorgeous and wonderful photos of it all. It sounds like you are having a fabulous time in PA!

    1. We are Jeanie.
      Thank you so much for your kind words.
      You and I both enjoy our lakes!
      Happy week to you my friend.

  6. It is very interesting how the lighthouses were built so differently. My favorite is the Barcelona Lighthouse, it is especially charming.

    1. I feel the same about the Barcelona.
      Thank you so much for your visit and you lovely words.
      Happy weekend to you!

Thank You So Much... for sharing your kind words. I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your thoughts.
