A rather famous but somewhat cliched photo from Brittany (All the Evangelical Christian newsletters seem to use the LA Jument Lighthouse in a stormy sea to represent something or other)       http://inlinethumb40.webshots.com/44199/2573069080104237032S600x600Q85.jpg

Riding a bike on a rod tht looks barely 2 ft wide. COOL!
It's not that narrow, and that's actually the easy part. The first few hundred feet is just a mess of uneven rocks and concrete patches that have weathered away at different rates.... and strangely, the railings only exist for the first 50 ft or so.

That modern designed light house is a really cool one as well. Is it ever open to the public?
Yep. Pay a few bucks and they give you a tour to the top! It's in Jupiter, Fl on the Northern edge of Palm Beach County.
