Zack the second picture looks like it came out of a archive. Cool.

Hi Zack ...

I think most all the the pictures posted in this thread are eerily great and I appreciate seeing them shared. A question ... how about some perspective ... where is and what is the significant land in relation to the lighthouse in that last post?
Believe those who search for the truth ...
Doubt those who find it ...

The lighthouse is on Mustang Island, to the right in that picture is St Joseph Island, and to the left is the town of Aransas Pass

Thanks for the compliments on my pictures 8)

Yeah it's to keep from falling off, IDK when it was added but I would assume Charles Butt added it after he purchased the structure, since he employs light keepers there....it's a liability issue
