February 17, 2021 – Gay Head Lighthouse – Massachusetts

Today Wilma and I Adventured to Gay Head Lighthouse in Aquinnah, Martha’s Vineyard. Gay Head Lighthouse was built in 1856. Gay Head Lighthouse is a red brick and sandstone lighthouse that is approximately 170 feet in height.

We had a fun Adventure to Gay Head Lighthouse. Gay Head Lighthouse was one of the locations I was especially eager to visit, a unique lighthouse with views of the Aquinnah Cliffs. We arrived to find ourselves alone, I was quite shocked as this is a top tourist destination in Martha’s Vineyard. We headed straight to the Gay Head Lighthouse, a scenic path leading the way. We arrived quickly, the sun streaming brightly. We walked around the small area and peered over the edge onto the cliffs, and they were really pretty, although not as spectacular as I had imagined. However we took in the views, and then returned to the base of the Lighthouse for some more photographs. From there we enjoyed the other aspects of the ground, and even spotted scenic views of the Lighthouse from afar, while traversing the nearby conservation land. So glad we could visit the Gay Head Lighthouse today (Rating: 4).

February 17, 2021 – East Chop Light – Massachusetts

Today Wilma and I Adventured to East Chop Light in Martha’s Vineyard. East Chop Light was originally built in 1876 and stands in the town of Oaks Bluff. It is appropriately 40 feet in height.

We had a peaceful Adventure to East Chop Light our first stop on our Martha’s Vineyard Adventure. We were the only guests at this location making it just right. We headed through the gate and over to East Chop. There was some fencing around the Lighthouse, but an opening that appeared to provide a door to wander the small grounds. It as a little unclear, but hopefully I visualized this correctly as there were no signs indicating otherwise. We walked around the grounds checking out the Lighthouse from each angle and of course Wilma appreciated the new smells. There were some benches nearby, and a purple porta potty right next to the Lighthouse – yikes! There was not much to explore, but so glad that we could visit East Chop Light today (Rating: 3).
