FCT 5 stands sentry on the beach at Gordon's Pond

On a clear day, as on any day, Fire Control Tower #5 stands sentry on Whiskey Beach, the Atlantic beach just north of Rehoboth Beach, DE. FCT #5 is one of a "pair" of these unique guardians standing watch on this portion of the Delaware coast to help protect the Delaware Bay and River from invasion by enemy ships during World War II.

One rainy day I figured the "sky was right" to capture the sentinel-like stature of this pair of Fire Control Towers as they might have stood during the dark days of World War II. Here FCT 5 and FCT 6 (in the back) stand sentry on the beach on the seaward side of Gordon's Pond.
