We had some last minute company this weekend, and we very often bring out of staters to Two Lights. I figured I wasn’t going to end up posting anything, since I was last there less than a week ago, but it turns out that the final onset of June heat has changed some things there, so a new post seemed in order.

Bonus location for the last picture: along the side of Route 77, closer to Crescent Beach.
