A little history behind the Owls Head Light
Just a short drive down the road and we were at the Owls Heads Lighthouse.  A nice little park setting and not as long as a walk from parking area to lighthouse.  We parked my truck and set out up the path to the lighthouse.  This lighthouse unlike the Breakwater is an actuall Coast Guard maintained lighthouse the keeper and his family have living quaters on premisis and judging by the purple power wheels Id say he has a little girl lol.  Thier is alot of nesting area in the surrounding grass so your not allowed off the trail.  We passed in front of the keepers house and made our way to the stairs and ramp that led to the oil house.  After snapping off some more pics it was up another flight of stairs luckily they wernt too steep and finally the lighthouse itself.  You cant go in so we just walked around the outside snapping off random pictures.  After we mad it back down the stiars I headed for the beach to explore some caves and she went back to the truck.  I call them the bat caves but there not really caves at all jut some reall big holes in the rock.  They still look cool and I spent some time climbing over and under them and of course through them.  I took some more pictures of the surrounding Islands and then headed back to the truck.  We decided to call it a day so we went to the movie store and rented a couple movies and went back home.  So next weekend who know what Ill do next!
