Lighthouse cruises go out from Cape May, New Jersey into the Delaware Bay during the summer months. I have been fortunate enough to take two of these cruises in past years. The combination of sky and water is so beautiful, and the lighthouses out there add color and interest. This one is called Elbow at Crossledge.
Here is what remains of one from earlier times, called Crossledge.
And this one is Ship John Shoal.
This one is known as Miah Maull.
The black and white one is Fourteen Foot Bank.
And this is called Brandywine Shoal.
Please visit our host, Tom, at Wigger's World, and see his list of participants in Sky Watch Friday so that you can view their photos for this week.

I have seen similar lighthouses in the Pacific near islands and around Japan but never anywhere else. They always seemed lonesome places to me and sometimes were swarming with birds.
Your photographs of those you posted are very good.
The second and last one are the best. In my humble opinion, of course!
I really loved all of your lighthouse photos... they are wonderful to view! We don't have too many out here in the mountains as I am sure you would know... beautiful post.
Have a good weekend!
Rocky Mountain Retreat
I especially love the cloud pictures.
These are great lighthouse shots! How many lives these keep safe!
These are all beautiful lighthouses and to think that people once lived in them? These are so appropiate for sky watch as the lighthouses are watches themselves. Lovely photos. Thanks for having visited mine.
Bobbie: Very beautiful pictures of the lighthouses and sky.
Gorgeous photos! The lighthouses look like big buoys! My hubby's great grandfather was a lighthouse keeper off Cape Cod. =)
I love your lighthouse photos. So pretty!
Hi! All very beautiful.
Beautiful lighthouse as subject.
I like that last one the best. I love lighthouses - where I grew up we had a few. My favorite one sits on an island that is now eroding (thanks to a few hurricane seasons too many) and it's in danger of falling into the water. Somehow, this makes me like it more - it's sort of rusty and weathered.
Oh, and PS - I'm also in the east coast time zone!
never see lighthouses like these. great pictures
I very much enjoyed your taking us with you on a lighthouse cruise. What interesting structures they are. Nice photographs.
Thanks for sharing your lighthouse cruise! Almost like I´ve been there myself. Red ones are nice.
Love no. 4! :)
Pop over to see my water features.
Lovely Sky Watch series. Greetings from Sri Lanka & have a great weekend!
Very nice all of your lighthouse photos!
That's a fabulous collection. I do like a lightouse or two
I've always liked pictures like these!! Thanks for sharing!
Great shot of lighthouses! We live along Lake Michigan and have a lighthouse also. In fact, we were called the Lighthouse District.
Thank you thank you thank you... I love light houses.. I will look up all these over the weekend when I get the time.. :O)
great shots as always bobbie
I love lighthouses and these are all beautiful.
Beautiful lighthouse pictures!
Love theme all :)!
Bobbie, great lighthouse shots. I love the bright red one. I couldn't help noticing the birds onthe ledge. Do you know what they are?
All beautiful images, excellent.
These are beautiful pictures! There is so much history and character there.
I have never seen a light house in person.
But those are different then what I seen in picture before.
Lovely photos Bobbie...really enjoyed this post....lovely...
I loved the photos and always have wondered about the type of people who could man those old ones. Not I.
Great photos. We took our grandson to visit the Split Rock lighthouse in northern Mn. and he still talks about it today. I love them but the do sound so mournful
bobbie, I'm so glad you visited at my blog. Your Skywatch photos of lighthouses are wonderful. I love lighthouses and when my husband and I several years ago went on a vacation through the Northeastern states we stopped at every lighthouse we could. This trip out of Cape May sounds marvelous. I'll have to look into it! :D
