Prudence Island Lighthouse (a.k.a. Sandy Point Lighthouse), Rhode Island, and a pair of cormorants. This was taken more than a decade ago, during my only visit to this island.
This is the oldest lighthouse in Rhode Island. It was originally built on Goat Island in Newport, RI, in 1824. It was moved to Prudence Island in 1851 after a new lighthouse was built at Goat Island.
