Aloha to Kaua'i - Kilauea Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge

We have a winner from last week's blogs - Jane wins a book choice from my convention stash!

On our last day in Kaua'i, we followed the coastal road to the North Shore, passing by the Kilauea Lighthouse.  From its website,

Dedicated in 1913 the Kilauea Lighthouse served as a pivotal navigation aid for ships on the Orient run. Today, it is one of Kauai's most visited sights with more than 500,000 annual visitors.

King Kamehameha looks to ... 

... the breathtaking landscape ...  
... that offers sanctuary to native birds.

This church, built with volcanic rocks, 
was waiting for me to take a picture!

Do you have any lighthouses in your area?  One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash.  This giveaway is open to all readers.   Comments are open through Saturday, July 14, 10 pm in Hawaii.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, July 15.

  1. I know there are many lighthouses on Long Island and upstate. Thanks so much, Kim.

  2. Congratulations, Jane!

    No lighthouses that I'm aware of in my neck of the woods - North Central Texas.

  3. Congrats Jane.

    The Atlantic is on our east coast but I live in the middle of the state so no light houses. I have been to see some in my travels.

  4. Florida is loaded with light houses. We have Coral reefs off shore and a lot of shallow water surrounding the state and hundreds of off shore islands. Therefore...may lighthouses.

  5. No lighthouses since I am not surrounded by any water.... But saw a few nice pretty ones in Halifax when we were on vacation last yr!

  6. Congratulations Jane enjoy the read.
    We have a small lighthouse mainly used for the fishermen & local boaters.
    I do enjoy going to port Dover that has a lighthouse It is one of the most photographed lighthouses around here.
    I am taking note's of all the places I want to visit .
    Have a good one Ann/alba

  7. No lighthouses here.

  8. I love the first photo you posted! There aren't any lighthouses near me, but I've visited several on vacations.

  9. Not here, great pics

  10. Congratulations, Jane. No, I'm afraid no lighthouses in southwest PA.

  11. No, I don't know of any lighthouses in Las Vegas.

  12. I love lighthouses. When we travel to coastal areas, I always need to visit the lighthouses. Here in San Diego we have two....the Old Point Loma Lighhouse which is up on a cliff, and the coast guard lighthouse in Point Loma which is at the bottom of the cliff. The one up high would get covered in clouds, so they needed to build one lower for the ships to be able to see it.

  13. Congrats, Jane!

    We don't have any light houses in Pittsburgh!
