After a two hour boat ride (the calmness of the water in the picture is a little deceiving) we circled the lighthouse for the best picture. Although everything now is automated, it was interesting to realize that the lighthouse keeper and his family actually lived in this building when it was first built. This must have been a very lonely place...

    This is a great shot of "Mobile MIddle Bay Lighthouse". As a native of Mobile, it's great to see that this historic structure is still an item of interest. There is great fishing around the lighthouse. There is a lens from this lighthouse on display at the Mobile Airport. There has been talk about taking her out of the water and moving her to Battleship Memorial Park to Preserve her.
