Full moon climb Saturday at lighthouse

The first Full Moon Climb of the new year will be held at the Cape St. George Lighthouse on St. George Island on Saturday, Jan. 26. The Sunset/Full Moon Climb will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and will include light hors d'oeuvres and a sparkling cider toast to the full moon. Cost is $15 for the general public and $10 for members of the St. George Lighthouse Association.

The sun will set at 6:12 p.m. and the moon will rise at 6:03 p.m.

After sunset, people are invited to climb to the top of the lighthouse for a breathtaking view of the full moon, as space and time permit. Cost is $10 for the general public and $5 for SGLA members.

The Cape St. George Light is located in St. George Lighthouse Park at the center of St. George Island, where Island Drive (the road off the bridge) ends at Gulf Beach Drive. Parking is available in lots at either side of the park.

Because space is limited, reservations are recommended. For reservations or more information, please contact the Lighthouse Gift Shop at 927-7745.
