Southeast Lighthouse in Block Island

The second of Block Island's lighthouses, Southeast Lighthouse is near Mohegan Bluffs. I caught the last rays of the summer sun around 6pm, driving out there with a friend on our rented moped. There's an area to park and a grassy area where you could picnic and enjoy the views. The lighthouse itself is on the smaller side, but it's the views of the bluffs you really want, especially as the sunset cascades into many hues of oranges and purples.
