Pensacola Lighthouse...

After visiting the National Naval Aviation Museum, Candace and I decided to stop at the Pensacola Lighthouse, one of the tallest lighthouses on the Gulf Coast. Here we explored the museum and bought some postcards, and I decided to brave the 177-step spiral staircase to the very top! It was rather high up there, but the views were quite beautiful. I even managed to see a US Navy fighter jet take off from the nearby Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola.
