Tybee Lighthouse, Georgia

Tybee Island Lighthouse...... Ordered by General James Oglethorp, governor of the 13th colony, in 1732, the Tybee Light Station has been guided mariners safe entrance into the Savannah River over 270 years.
This is the original model of the lighthouse.

The lighthouse has 178 steps up to the light, with window landings to look out about over 25 steps.
This is just one angle of the view from the top of the lighthouse.
The lighthouse has the first Fresnel lens 9 feet tall. It was beautiful to see.
