I really love a great many of the photos I've seen so far. I'll have to do a bit more exploring. Very nice.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving such a lovely comment over at my place today.

Carolynn,
Thanks, and welcome.

Ken Mac,
Thanks Ken! I enjoy your site as well.

Whitemist,
Agree! Do you realize that Greenwich, Sheffield, Old Field Point, Morgan Point, Plum island, and Block Island North Light are nearly identical?
They were all built in the 1860-70s, and are very, very similar.
