This year Sandy Hook Lighthouse is celebrating its 250th birthday!  That’s why the bunting is on. 

It also looks like the beloved lighthouse has gotten a new paint job since I last visited two years ago!

Sandy Hook is at the very beginning of the New Jersey shore. It is a barrier spit extending out into the Atlantic Ocean. On one side is Sandy Hook Bay, and on the other side is the Atlantic Ocean. New York City is visible in the distance.
