THE FINAL STEP
This is how the walkway used to look.
This is how it looked after1985 when the walkway was rebuilt. Note that the arches were lowered, and that the entire walkway was replaced with unpainted, pressure-treated wood.
Thanks to help from many friends of Doubling Point Light, the lighthouse has now been fully restored. The first step was to restore the tall gracious arches (below left), and the second was to paint them white (below right).
