Rochester, New York
It was a dark and stormy... WAIT! It was dreary but not stormy on that morning a little more than a week ago when I photographed the Charlotte-Genesee Lighthouse from the harbor below.
Occupying a bluff above the Port of Rochester, the 40-foot tower was built in 1822 with another 12 feet of height to house the light - a lantern. Apparently the panorama from the top is a beautiful experience, but so far I have never climbed the 42 stairs and the 12 ladder rungs to find out for myself.
The keeper's house (in this photo behind the tower) was constructed in 1863 and is now a museum, currently showing the Lincoln and New York traveling exhibition, which is said to probe myths and controversies surrounding Abraham Lincoln. Hmm. Sounds mighty interesting to me...but I didn't see it.
