On Thursday while we were waiting for the clouds to clear (it turned out to be a perfect beach day in the afternoon) we took a short trip to North Wildwood and checked out the historic Hereford Inlet Lighthouse. The lighthouse is well known for the beautiful gardens which apparently have been lovingly and generously designed and maintained by a man who donates 20 - 40 hours of his time / week. The lighthouse has American Gothic architectural elements including the tower. It's not your typical long, white, cylindrical coastal tower. Below is the house with connected lighthouse. The following photos show parts of the extensive gardens. Out back the garden transitions to a coastal path that leads to the last photo which shows the Hereford Inlet.
