Today we Adventured to Fort Sewall in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Fort Sewall is located in Gale’s Head. It was first established in 1644 and utilized for defense in several different wars, being expanded throughout the years. The Fort was turned over to the town in 1922 and is now a public park.
We were lucky to have three little Adventures in Marblehead today. Fort Sewall was one of our stops. It was the second time we have been to Fort Sewall as we had been there two years ago with Shadow and my Mom. We were lucky to choose yet another sunny, and breezy winter day, clouds perfectly aligned in the bright blue sky. The sun was shining on the water, creating a marvelous view across the Harbor. This was a popular spot on this lovely, and unusually warm January day.
The Fort is located in the middle of a paved path that winds over and around the Fort, while displaying views of the Marblehead Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. You can even see the Marblehead Lighthouse, far across the waters. We walked above the Fort marveling at this magnificent seaside location. We took several detours to explore the areas along the rocks. There were many benches along the way to sit and relax.
After looping around we went down to the Fort to peak into the doors and windows. I was humored watching Shadow and Wilma as they seemed curious about what was behind the walls. We then sauntered through the grass taking some time for some dog rolls and stretching. A simple location but another quite picturesque spot in Marblehead. So glad we could enjoy some time at Fort Sewall today (Rating: 4).
I am continuing to have challenges downloading videos but if and when it appears I will add it to this post.
Today we Adventured to Castle Rock in Marblehead, Massachusetts. This Park is located on Marblehead Neck, and is less then 2 acres in size. The area was previously known as “Great Head”. It is popular for sailing, fishing, and scenic viewing.
We were lucky to have three little Adventures in Marblehead today. Castle Rock was one of our stops. It was the second time we have been to Castle Rock as we had been there two years ago with Shadow and my Mom. We were lucky to choose yet another sunny, and breezy winter day, clouds perfectly aligned in the bright blue sky. We were pleased to arrive at this little spot with very few other little visitors. We strolled along taking in the coastal smells, and spectacular scenic views. Wilma startled me a bit by jumping up on the rock fence, although I should know better to expect her jumps! She enjoyed walking along while Shadow and I followed below. We wandered over the the beach area checking out the tidal pools. The rocks we a bit sharp and uneven we we did not wander too far out. We walked around and headed past the large Rock enjoying a beautiful horizon view. We really could not have picked a better day for a coastal sky. A wonderful stop on our Marblehead Adventure (Rating: 4).

I have not been able to download the video I was planning but will add it at a later date if it cooperates 🙂
Today we Adventured to Chandler Hovey Park, also referred to as Lighthouse Point. This Park is known for being the location of the Marblehead Lighthouse.
Marblehead Lighthouse was built in 1896, and is a 105 foot cast iron skeletal tower. It is the only one of this type in New England. The Park is less then four acres total, cornered by gorgeous ocean views. It has benches, pavilions and numerous rocks for climbing.
We were lucky to have three little Adventures in Marblehead today. The Chandler Hovey Park was one of our stops. This was our second Adventure to the Chandler Hovey Park and Marblehead Lighthouse, as we had been there before with Shadow and my Mom. This is a small park that provides absolutely stunning views from Marblehead Neck. We were lucky to choose yet another sunny, and breezy winter day, clouds perfectly aligned in the bright blue sky. Both Shadow and Wilma were enthused at this location enjoying lots of grass rolls, and play. We walked around the park enjoying the picturesque sky, crashing waves, and rough rocks. We posed continually with the Marblehead Lighthouse, as you will see below! It was the prefect kind of day at this special location (Rating: 4).
