Description
The Eastern Point Lighthouse marks the east side of the entrance to Gloucester Harbor, which was one of the busiest fishing ports of the 1800's. The light is probably best photographed in the afternoon from anywhere along the length of the 2,250 foot long breakwater, which unfortunately wasn't when I was there.
