Big glass or small boat?

When I took the tour from Boston Harbor a few years back, the boat lingered far too far (I believe it was out at buoy #9) for me to get the full frame shot you shared here ... While I seem to remember NELL once getting access to the property, most of the shots I have of this light were taken from the bottom of the hill, from the end of that road (viewed to the far left in this shot) To say they were "house obstructed" would to be an accurate assessment

Big glass across Beverly Harbor from a walkway along Beach Avenue with an unobstructed view.

This news about increased access to Hospital Point Light is great -- this is a really beautiful light station.

The Hospital Point Light grounds are not open to the public on ordinary days. But if you really want to visit the area, take note on your calendar the month of August. They usually have an annual open house with the celebration of Beverly Homecoming. Heart Surgery
