The lure of lighthouses
Just past the Hamptons in New York is Montauk Point. It is the northernmost point of Long Island. A few years ago we went to Montauk Point for the holiday lighting ceremony the day after Thanksgiving. This is the oldest lighthouse in New York and one of the oldest in the country. It was commissioned by George Washington.
