Today Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to Fort Taber Park in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Fort Taber Park is an oceanfront Park in Clark’s Point which includes a museum, Fort Rodman, a playground and a walking and bicycle path. On top of the Fort you can find the Clark’s Point Lighthouse. In the summer months the Park is also popular for swimming, and picnicking.
We had a gorgeous Adventure to Fort Taber Park. We were quite lucky to get a warm and sunny New England day adding quite the picturesque coastal scene. Shadow and I had been to Fort Taber Park about three years ago, but only visited briefly as it was the end of the day of a long day of exploring, and dusk was upon us. I therefore was quite thrilled to more thoroughly explore this area. The Park was quiet with few other guests. We began following the paved trail around the Fort Rodman, taking the outside loop to ensure a coastal experience. The sun was shining brightly, just beautiful. We sauntered around, taking many pictures. The Fort was tall, and grand, clearly 19th century history. I attempted to get a photograph of the Lighthouse, but not a simple task being located on the very top of the Fort. We enjoyed walking around, lots of rolls, and numerous photos per our usual Adventure.
Besides exploring the outer grounds of the Fort itself we enjoyed some time on the beach which had contrasting colors, and ice throughout adding a unique scene. We then wandered down the lengthy pier, which appeared from afar to bring you to the foot of the Butler Flats Lighthouse. Wilma was quite curious about all the shells, and smells, the shells appearing to have been dropped onto the pier from birds above. The sun sparkled off the water, creating a lovely scene. We spotted some boat from afar, and took or time checking out the view.
We enjoyed every moment of our Adventure at Fort Taber Park taking in the sights, sounds, and smells. Such a perfect location that combines recreation, history, and coastal splendor. Definitely a special place in New England. We look forward to returning again in the future (Rating: 4.5).
