Cove Point Light

Cove Point Light

 

On my second attempt to see/photograph Cove Point Lighthouse I was at least able to see the Lantern above the keeper’s house.  It was a rainy weekend and to my advantage I was able to get a pretty good shot of the Fourth-order Fresnel lens doing it’s job on Cove Point.

This cylinder shaped, brick lighthouse sits directly in front of the keeper’s building and is only accessible certain times through the Calvert Marine Museum.   Fenced off from the public, the lighthouse can only be seen from the water or from the private beaches on either side on the point, or during the times of operation.

Apparently the keeper’s quarters, which were divided into two units, are available for vacation rentals.  This would absolutely make my bucket list!
