Ever since I found out on a friend’s website, KEEP IT JIGGY, about another lighthouse in Jamaica I made it my mission to find it when I got to St Mary two weeks ago. I’m obsessed with lighthouses, I just find them so intriguing!
Let me tell you it was no easy feat….it seemed no one knew where it was! We left it up to a route taxi driver to ask around and finally he found the way. I didn’t regret it and I got the perfect stormy day to photograph it!
Once we got in here I understood why it was so hard to find, the drive in through thick bush and a residential community wasn’t what I expected. I found this aerial picture online of the land surrounding the lighthouse, and before that long stretch of road to the lighthouse is where the bush and community are.
Like I said, the day I chose to find this place was spectacular….windy, stormy and ominous. The water crashed up on the rocks in front of the lighthouse and you wouldn’t believe how many tries it took for me to catch a decent shot! This one isn’t even close to the best wave crash I saw.
The surroundings of the lighthouse were just as beautiful as the structure itself. In addition to the wide open space of rock surrounding it, this stone wall was built up around the area. I love the look of the wall.
If you’re ever in the parish of St Mary on Jamaica’s north coast, DO ask around til you find out where this lighthouse is! And here’s me doing what I do best….taking in the breathtaking scenery of Jamaica with camera in hand!
