Cove Point Lighthouse and Drum Point Lighthouse

We spotted Cove Point Lighthouse from Calvert Cliffs.

We drove around only to find the gate securely shut.

It is the oldest continuously working lighthouse in Maryland.

So we took a couple of pictures and drove on to Drum Point Lighthouse located at the Calvert Marine Museum on Solomon's Island.

Drum Point Lighthouse was constructed in 1883 to mark the entrance to the Patuxent River. It served on its site until 1962. It is one of only three remaining cottage-type lighthouses of the original forty-five in Chesapeake Bay.  As far as I know, Florida has nothing similar.

A nice sailing yacht was being guided in.
