I thought Ponce Inlet was the tallest lighthouse in Florida. Good news they will be able to access the light again.

Red,

Excellent point ... go back a few days of posts and there is another article reiterating what you said, that Ponce is the tallest ... must be semantical like structures or focal planes or other such nonsense

I'm glad that Pensacola is open, however, at 150' it is 18' shorter than 'Ponce.' It's not even close....structure-vs-structure, not including
ground elevation above sealevel. 'Ponce' is a 168' structure.

Pensacola has the heightest focal plane in Florida. I sure that is what they meant.
