1868 Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Cape Canaveral, FL--The Stone family lived here in the 1930s and had a pet alligator named Joe. They moved him to Hillsboro Lighthouse when they were transferred. I was on a bus tour of Cape Canaveral many years ago looking at the historic laucnh sites of the Mercury space flights. When this lighthouse came into view, a woman on the bus screamed: "Look at that pretty rocket!"
Hillsboro Inlet Light is located on the north side of Hillsboro Inlet, midway between Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton, in Hillsboro Beach, Florida. The light marks the northern limit of the Florida Reef, an underwater coral formation on the lower east coast of the state.
