Oh, what a beautiful mornin’
Oh, what a beautiful day.
Built in 1817, the Hog Island Lighthouse stands at the western tip of the what is now called Paradise Island, The Islands of The Bahamas. This photo was taken on a beautiful morning from the beach at Nassau on New Providence Island.
Hog Island Lighthouse details:
Paradise Island (Hog Island, Nassau Harbour)
1817. Active; focal plane 21 m (69 ft); flash every 5 s, generally white, but the light changes to red when conditions are dangerous for entry. 19 m (63 ft) round old-style brick tower with lantern and gallery, painted white; lantern painted red… This is the oldest and best known lighthouse in the Bahamas and the oldest surviving lighthouse in the West Indies. Located at the western end of Paradise Island (formerly Hog Island) marking the northwest entrance to Nassau Harbor. Site status unknown. Good view from cruise ships entering the harbor.
