Lighthouses of Florida

Lighthouses of FloridaLighthouses of Florida

Episode 84

Florida’s lighthouses have provided constant beacons of light to sailors for many years, bringing them home
safely. Effectively helping them to navigate the treacherous and sometimes dangerous reefs and jetties that must be avoided in order to reach our coastal paradise.
It is inspiring to see the lighthouses, to hear the stories of those who were the keepers of the light, the stories of those saved by the light and to see them still standing, still doing their job — constant.
I’d like to invite you to explore some of these lighthouses that have been a welcome sight for so many
through the years. – Suzanne Nunn, FPEA Chairman
