July: Fowey Rocks Light
Fowey Rocks Light stands at the mouth of Biscayne Bay, perched above the waves on skinny cast-iron poles.
Named for the Royal Navy frigate HMS Fowey, which was wrecked on a reef farther south of Key Biscayne, it supports a light 110 feet above the water. During its construction in the late 1800s, the 1,500-ton steamship Arratoon Apcar ran aground just 200 yards from the workmen’s platform.
Today, it is a popular scuba diving site.
