Throwback Adventure – Derby Wharf Light Station – 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!

Shadow and I Adventured to Derby Wharf Light back in January 2012.  The Derby Wharf Light Station is a historic lighthouse located in Salem, Massachusetts.  It was built in 1871 and is approximately 20 feet in height.  The lighthouse is located at the end of Derby Wharf and continues to aid boat navigation.

We had a fun, blue-sky Adventure to the Derby Wharf Light Station.  Our day was filled with many Adventures, and the Derby Wharf Light was one of our stops.  We walked out to the end of the Derby Wharf to check out this structure.  It was fun find the lighthouse at the end of the wharf.  Derby Light was unique in shape and location.  The area was busy with other guests but we were able to snap a couple photographs before others joined us.  So glad we could visit the Derby Wharf Light Station (Throwback Adventures will not always be rated).

Throwback Adventure – Nauset Lighthouse/Nauset Beach Lighthouse – Massachusetts

In April of 2017 Shadow, My Mom, and I Adventured to the Nauset Lighthouse (also referred to as the Nauset Beach Lighthouse) in Eastham, Massachusetts, part of Cape Cod.  The Nauset Lighthouse was restored and relocated back in 1923.  The Nauset Light Preservation Society currently maintains the Lighthouse and through private donations funded the restoration and relocation of the lighthouse.  The Lighthouse has benches nearby and is located adjacent to the Nauset Light Beach.

We had a dark spring-day Adventure to the Nauset Lighthouse, one of the many stops on a getaway to Cape Cod.  I always am pleased to find a Lighthouse with unique features, and the Nauset Lighthouse definitely did not disappoint.  We wandered up to the Lighthouse and around, glad to find the spot all to ourselves.  It was a brown spring day but the bright red on the Lighthouse added the perfect touch.  We located a photo frame nearby of which you could pose with the Lighthouse, a fun little feature for tourists and Adventurists like ourselves.  A delightful visit to the Nauset Lighthouse (Rating:  4).
