I wish them nothing short of a quick and successful completion of their restoration work, followed by another 42 years continuously lit run. I was working in Florida from December 2004 to February 2005. One Sunday during that stretch that we didn't work I ran down to see this light and Hillsboro. Unfortunately Jupiter was closed to the public then too. I don't recall why anymore. Photographically that left me with basically two options. 1)Shoot from behind the fence in the parking area. 2) Go back out across the river on US-1 and turn down a side street and shoot it across the river from beside a restaurant at the dead end. I'd recognize it in an instant in person, but looking at a map I'm trying to remember which street I was on. I'm thinking it was Love St, Clemson St, or Anchor Way. I don't believe it was Yarborough St. Whichever it was I recommend shooting from this side with the activity on the river for a foreground. I've got some decent shots of it, but they're all on slide film with no slide scanner. If you're going, and have GPS, the light itself is 26.94840°N 80.08170°W
