Orient Point Lighthouse, New York

The New London-Orient Point Ferry went right past the Orient Point Lighthouse.

This was built in 1899 and is 64 ft. high. You can tell from my pictures why it's called "The Coffee Pot."

If you look closely at my pictures, you'll see that it looks a little crooked. That's not my fault. It's 5° off of vertical!

The wikipedia article is here and there's a good article on it here.
