Hereford Inlet Lighthouse and Gardens

Wow! I have been meaning to visit the Hereford Lighthouse in North Wildwood for years now, but just haven't gotten around to it until now. An online gardening friend tipped me off that their gardens are spectacular and should be at peak right now. The gardens are really spectacular with plenty of flowers that grow in the shore climate such as hibiscus, hollyhocks and hydrangea. So here's a taste:

There was a shaded path leading to the inlet. I'd never been here before and it looks like a great place to walk the dog, bike, run, or sit on a bench and read. Here's a photo from the ground, and one from the top of the lighthouse.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot! We toured the lighthouse, too. they call it "The Victorian Lighthouse" as it's built of wood more like a house than a traditional lighthouse. Very interesting!
