Buffalo Main Lighthouse

The map shows all the lighthouses that used to be in the area.
Transparent lights no longer exist/have been moved.
Buff Main LH is in the center.
Intake Crib LH is top left.
Two Bottle lights are shown in their former locations.

Due to poor planning on my part, I was excited to have some easy photos to share yesterday for Wordless Wednesday but didn't realize until Wednesday morning that if I am at a conference all day I can't post anything! Oh well...hope you didn't miss me too much.

Before heading home from my conference last week, I visited the Buff Main Lighthouse. Despite the GPS not differentiating well between the fly over and the ground roads and then not finding the walkway around the Coast Gaurd Station for some time, I did have an excellent walkabout.

The LH ws built on this location in 1833.

Can you see the fresnel lens? I am not sure what order this is, but fairly large.
None of the signage indicated if it's the original lens.
The sky was true blue and sunny and I managed to get my first sunburn for the year.

Facing downtown Buffalo.
A relocated bottle light is on the right.

Buffalo Intake Crib Light.
