I had the good fortune of going inside and touring the Thomas Point Shoal lighthouse off the coast of Annapolis, Maryland out in the Chesapeake Bay the last Saturday in July. Only open a few times a year, I flew up from Florida for the tour of the picturesque 1875 house while learning all about its history and its future, as renovations are continuous to restore the inside back to both its 19th century setting and also the 1930′s. Complete with a faux osprey to help keep the seagulls away from the light, I also got to meet a gentleman on the boat who used to work in the light back in 1970 and hasn’t been back since. He had some great stories and pictures of back then. I ended up taking a different boat tour back out to the light later on in the day, but this tour didn't stop or go inside the light.
