It was raining very hard when I visited this light house. I put on my rain coat and dwaddled on out there. It took longer than I expected because I had to be cautious with the rocks being slippery and not all the same size. There is a 7/8 mile long rock walk that they call a "breakwater". It appeared to be about 10 foot wide. You can walk the rocks all the way and then go up the stairs to see around it.
