New York - Saugerties Lighthouse

Saugerties Lighthouse

The historic lighthouse is at the northern tip of Esopus Creek where it enters the Hudson River. It has been out of use since 1954 and now functions as a B&B. In fact, I got there early enough that the guests were still eating breakfast, so my photos tread carefully around their privacy and the experience they paid for.

The Hudson River isn't that interesting, so instead my scenery looks at the mouth of Esopus Creek. To the right (west) is Saugerties marsh, while to the left are the hills defining the east side of Hudson Valley.

Across the river in Clermont, someone has decided they'd rather live on top of the pretty hill than facing it.

Old-timey building, old-timey bird: the mourning dove. It's like a 19th-century pigeon.
