    Maybe someone can post a picture here once it's done. We were there many years ago when it was being painted and were so disappointed on our next trip that it had already been graffitied (sorry, that may not be a word)

    It's a great icon of the island when it's in good repair, with great views from that vantage point. We once watched NY eve fireworks from up there.

    yes indeed beautiful views from that location.

    i do not know how they will keep the graffiti taggers away.
    i hope that they have a workable plan.

    As of June 14, there is still a construction fence around the California lighthouse:

    But otherwise, it looks fantastic! Many tourists taking photos of the California Lighthouse (minus the fence) and enjoying the view and the restaurant there:
