Heat is on first time this season.

This weekend is the 7th Annual NJ Lighthouse Challenge, visiting 11 lighthouses in 2 days. I've been inside only 3 of the 11, never even seen 4 of them. Only Barnegat, Absecon & Cape May are the classic tall stone tower types one associates with the word "lighthouse." But I'm most fond of Hereford Inlet, with a tower built into a Victorian house; it was certainly a less difficult job for a keeper than climbing a 150 foot circular stairway several times each day.
