Throwback Adventure – Avery Point Light – Connecticut

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 of 2017 Shadow and I Adventured to Avery Point Light in Groton, Connecticut. The Avery Point Lighthouse is located on the campus of the University of Connecticut. It was established in 1944, and is the last Lighthouse that was built in the Connecticut. The Avery Point Lighthouse was later restored in 2006 due to disrepair.  It is currently is managed by the American Lighthouse Foundation.

We had a lovely Adventure to the Avery Point Lighthouse back on a sunny winter afternoon. There was limited parking, and I remember being a little unclear if I had parked in an appropriate spot. However, we stationed and headed off to the Lighthouse. The grass was surprisingly bright green, and the sky blue, masking the “normal” landscape of a winter afternoon. We were able to stroll directly up to the lighthouse, and of course we walked around to view each angle. Shadow was quite photogenic, although the bright sun was not too cooperative in capturing these moments. The Avery Point Lighthouse was definitely unique in location, and style. It was great that we could get an up-close and personal view. So glad we were able to Adventure to the Avery Point Lighthouse (Throwback Adventures will not always be rated.)
