The drive up the steep cliffs to Twin Lights Lighthouse and Historic Site is crazy complicated, with numerous thirty-degree switchbacks up tiny lanes through old neighborhoods. I’ve never seen streets like this, except in Gatlinburg and San Francisco. Nearly every homeowner gets a view of the ocean.

Above: Once at the top the view from the Twin Lights grounds is fantastic, in fact we can see the New York City skyline and Manhattan even in the daytime. Four bridges below us gangplank hundreds of cars to and from the ocean over the bay. Boats cruise in and out of a dozen marinas. The entire Sandy Hook National Park is laid out before us. Hundreds of houses are stacked one atop the other all the way down the hill to the water. Puffy alabaster clouds scatter and punctuate a dark blue afternoon sky.

We explore the lighthouse, walk up some fifty stairs to get to the top, and gaze out at the best view we have had in New Jersey. Stiff coastal winds pick up and cool us down.
