I figure I won't spend a lot of time at all the lighthouses maybe just a few, but would like to get some pictures of them as they are on our route. o they really will not take up too much time. If it seems like I am duplicating anything in a second place, let me know. Or if there is anything you think is not worth my time or if there is something I missed that I really should include please tell me that? Is it better to go clockwise around or conter-clockwise? Any suggestions on good places to eat in these spots? Camping spots or inexpensive places to stay?
