|The lighthouse became operational in 1913. It was decommissioned in 1976 and a three-year restoration was completed in 2013.|
|The lighthouse is located within the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge.|
|I zoomed in a little to capture waves crashing against the cliffs.|
The seas all around us roared and churned. Those white spots on the hillside are birds.
|Even the birds were having a hard time with the wind.|
|Until I saw this picture, I didn't realize how dorky I looked |
in my black sneakers and socks. Oh, well. What the heck.
I did a lot of walking that day, and my feet were comfortable.
The lighthouse interior was not accessible.
We were told that whales were probably in the area. It was the right time of year. However, with the white-capped waves, we couldn't distinguish a whale spout from spray from the breakers! Our resort was in Princeville, and the lighthouse was only about seven miles down Highway 56.
