This was my first stop of the day of island and ferry hopping through Puget Sound. I had not been to Point Robinson before this trip. What a pretty light and a pretty spot it sits in! We took a ferry from Tacoma to Vashon Island to get to this light. We also found out to make sure you have a full tank of gas before you start island hopping - gas as it was cost an average $2.50 a gallon out there and it was $2.85-2.95 on the islands!

Not quite as much color here due to shooting into the sun.

A closeup of the lantern room...

And of the far end of the point looking back at the lighthouse.

A wider shot with the outbuilding...and as I get lucky once again with a passing freighter (I literally had to run for this one as the freighter was moving a lot faster than I anticipated)...

Made for a great panoramic...

And a vertical of the lighthouse.

This light has obviously been very well taken care of and lovingly restored. It was not open when I was there, but the grounds were very accessible and easy to find. Even got to see a herd of billy goats in the parking lot...(sorry I didn't get a shot!)

Those are great Jen!

What kind of cart is that beside the lighthouse in that last shot?

It's a small reproduction "Old West Wagon" that's been turned into a flower bed. 8)
