Gulf Coast - Sentinels, Sunshine & Sand

Our 2015 tour of 27 Gulf Coast lighthouses is highlighted by boat trips into the Mississippi "bird foot" delta, Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico to view some seldom seen off shore lights.  Additional stops will be made at the newly restored Round Island Lighthouse, the lights along Florida's "forgotten coast" and the only lighthouse in the middle of a four lane highway!   So escape the snow and gloom of winter and head to the Big Easy and Bourbon Street in March for a lighthouse trip that promises to be tres bien.
