Burlington Canal Lighthouse
Built in 1858 of dolomite limestone, this lighthouse was no longer needed by the 1930s due to radar and better lighting on the nearby pier. The lighthouse - in use for more than a century - was decommissioned in 1968, making it vacant for a little more than half a century.
V is for VACANT.
It's pretty obvious why this old barn is now vacant.
Nest made in the hollow of an upright log
The breeding season is now over here and there are many avian vacancies.

The barn appears to be doing a curtsy at the end of it's act.
I think the nest is in better shape than the barn!!

You have make beautiful photos!
Greetings, RW & SK
I'd guess there will be more vacancies in your area soon as a whole bunch of folks are heading to Florida. In fact, I think many of them are already here! Yikes!
Love that lighthouse.
Excellent photos to go with the letter "V".
I can think of all kinds of cool new uses for an old abandoned lighthouse.
Oh the poor barn! I agree with Lowell above...I can think of uses for that lighthouse!
well the barn is past it's best!! However I too could think of a couple of neat uses for the light house. Great shots.
Love the lighthouse EG , can't believe someone hasn't bought and renovated it in all that time!
Although all your pictures are neat, especially love that nest picture!
Sweet little nest.
Interesting vacant spaces. I agree with others, something should be done with the lighthouse.
Oh I LOVE these. Hug B
that lighthouse is so pretty, i love the dead leaves matching the rusty top.. great shot and the barn says it all, can we borrow it for the USA?
You chose some very creative and interesting subjects for the meme. I adore the nest in the hollow tree. Really superb!
Nice lighthouse shot! Love the colors and textures.
the last one is adorable! love the nest. birds are brilliant builders!
I am glad the lighthouse is still standing. Great shots for the letter V!
Great photos for the letter V! I love the lighthouse. I am another one that could find a way to use the lighthouse. This is the 4th lighthouse I've seen posted today and they are one of my favorite things.
I love the wee nest! ;-)
the nest made me smile. :)
Nicely nice! Most pleasant visit, thanks
Latarnia dalej bardzo mi się podoba. Jest ciekawą budowlą. Pozdrawiam.
Lighthouse on I like. It is an interesting building. Yours.
I love the lighthouse photo. It's sad that so many of these are now decommissioned and falling into ruin. The bird nest on the tree is an interesting find. Great choices for 'v'.
Love the lighthouse shot!

I especially like the empty nest shot.
loving the heart shaped leaves floating in the water!
Looks like it's a very good thing that the barn is vacant!
Like the barn shot and nice to learn about a lighthouse in Burlington.
That nest is well disguised! Beautiful fall images.
Gosh, that barn is a sad one.
Loving the avian vacancies, and that romantic old lighthouse!
What a condition of the barn, it will make a good plot for a story.:)
The nest was hard to spot initially. Great pics.
Great shots!!! Each seems to tell such a sweet story with a bit of a sad ending. Thanks for sharing.
lovely shots! love the barn...
All of these photos are fabulous! I'm especially drawn to the lighthouse. Thanks for sharing a little bit about each of these sites.
Awesome shots and quite various too!
Lovely old barn fading back to nature. I always try to imagine the story an old building would tell.
The lighthouse and the barn are great photos, but I like the nest the best!!!
Such great finds♫♪ Love all three. My letter V: http://lauriekazmierczak.com/vertical-lift/
Great vacant shots, EG!
My favorite is the lighthouse. I'm a fan of them.
It looks like the barn had a vibrant life...
Very cool photographs for the letter "V"!
