Throwback Adventure – Palmer Island Lighthouse – Massachusetts

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

In January 2017 Shadow and I Adventured to the Palmer Lighthouse in New Bedford, Massachusetts.  The Palmer Lighthouse is located in the Acushnet River at the entrance to New Bedford Harbor.  It was built in 1849.  The Lighthouse is twenty four feet high and is made out of stone rubble.  It can be reached by foot at low tide through the hurricane wall in New Bedford Harbor.  The Palmer Lighthouse is no longer a working lighthouse.

We had a wild Adventure to the Palmer Ligthouse on a cool winter day.  We had many Adventures in New Bedford on this day, and the Palmer Lighthouse was one of our most scenic stops.  I do not remember doing much research but found that we could make our way to the Lighthouse as the tide was low.  Having no idea what the tidal patterns were we decided to journey to the Lighthouse, closely watching the water.  We met a nice family along the way that adored Shadow, while also ran into some teenagers in the appearing to be up to some trouble.  I was quite disappointed at all the trash in the area, I guess left behind from the tide.  However we carried on, sometimes on rocky footing, but soon arrived at the Palmer Lighthouse.  The Lighthouse was quite stunning, bright white and uniquely stone.  There was a stone-like pathway directly to the Lighthouse so we were able to climb to the door to check out this beautiful Lighthouse.  We really lucked out finding low tide on this visit, but did not stay long unsure what to expect upon our return.  A fun, and memorable Adventure to the Palmer Lighthouse (Rating:  3).
