Today Wilma and I Adventured to Scituate, Massachusetts. Scituate is a coastal town in Southern Massachusetts. It is a small town known for the beaches, history, restaurants, shops, and the fishing community.
We had a walking-filled Adventure to Scituate on a beautiful winter day. Although we have been to many of the locations we visited today, I have only blogged about the Scituate Lighthouse, so decided to do a blog about the town. Today we explored: Scituate Harbor, the Harborwalk, the shopping district, Lawson Tower, Veteran’s Memorial Bridge, and the Scituate Lighthouse. We walked and walked, and enjoyed the spectacular sun on this winter day.
The most beautiful stop in Scituate today was definitely the Scituate Lighthouse. It is one of the most gorgeous Lighthouses in New England with several breakwaters, and rocky beaches surrounding. One of the special features about the Scituate Lighthouse is you can get up-close to view this spectacular structure. While at the Lighthouse Wilma especially loved exploring the beach, covered with rounded beautifully colored rocks, and hoping along the breakwater rocks. We have been to the Scituate Lighthouse numerous times, and it never disappoints.
We also stopped at Lawson Tower, which we had not been to before. This was a grandly tall structure, surrounded by gating, but yet a unique and unusual Tower. I initially was planning on just blogging about this Tower but decided to share the summary of our time in Scituate due to our numerous other stops, and time spent exploring.
Throughout the day Wilma enjoyed charming those around us, rolling in the grass, walking, and exploring the coastal smells. I was planning on a half day trip today but between Scituate and our previous stop we walked the day away! So glad we could visit Scituate today (Rating: 4)
Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Scituate Lighthouse in Scituate, Massachusetts. This was my third visit to the Scituate Lighthouse. The Scituate Lighthouse is also referred to as Old Scituate Lighthouse. It is a historic lighthouse which was built in 1811, later being purchased by the town of Scituate. It is located at Cedar Point in Scituate Harbor, and as expected is a popular location for painters.
We had a gorgeous Adventure to Scituate Lighthouse. Although I have been here twice before I apparently had forgotten the beauty. We arrived to find the sky blue, with fluffy white clouds. We circled the Lighthouse and then decided to hop down the long breakwater. The breeze was perfect, the large boulders colorful. The water was crashing into the breakwater, adding lovely drama. As we hopped I continually peaked back to check out the different views. The breakwater was not difficult to traverse, but yet the rocks did require careful calculation, especially with an energetic Wilma leading the way. We went to the very end of the breakwater, and appreciated the spectacular scene. We relaxed for a bit enjoying the breeze before turning back.
After we visited the beach, lots of rocks, and new angles of the lighthouse. Wilma was interested in the water, although still had jumpy movements with the waves. She explored the shore, and often looked around as though she was appreciating the views. We then decided to check out the smaller breakwater, another fun part of Adventure.
Lastly we made sure to explore the beach on the opposite side. It was a little more challenging arriving at this beach, with lots of uneven rocks. The rocks were round, and colorful, many my favorite color – purple! It was a little challenging walking along the shore due to the numerous rocks creating an unsteady gait. However we could not miss a part of the shore. From there we headed for one last view of the Lighthouse before heading out. The area was a bit more crowded then I preferred, but to be expected. Definitely one of the most beautiful Lighthouses in New England (Rating: 5).
