Halfway There - Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse, Florida

Want to get some exercise and take photos during it? I suggest looking for a tall lighthouse and climbing to the top and then back down. I am not a big fan of step machines, but give me a 175 foot tall lighthouse and I am all in. That is what I found in Ponce de Leon Inlet. The lighthouse there is the third tallest in the United States, with 203 steps up and 203 back down. The lighthouse is quite beautiful from the outside, being fully restored in 1998, and it has been kept in pristine shape since then. As beautiful as it is, I have a fondness for shooting up and down the spiral staircases inside. This photo was taken about halfway from my descent down. It sure was a lot easier than the the climb up.
