Today Wilma and I Adventured to Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Cape Cod is a peninsula in the Atlantic Ocean off the southeastern corner of Massachusetts. It is a popular summer destination known for the laid-back lifestyle. Cape Cod draws tourists for its beaches, lighthouses, ponds, villages, and the seafood shacks and restaurants.
We had a refreshing Adventure to Cape Cod today. Our main stops included: Herring Run Recreation Area, the Nauset Lighthouse, Sagamore Recreation Area, Nauset Light Beach, and the Chatham Windmill in Chase Park. We also found some other little things, including a sunset walk around a cranberry bog, a unique way to end a spectacular day.
My favorite parts of today’s Adventures were: our extra long walk along the canal, visiting one of our favorite lighthouse, a gorgeous beach stroll, and finding a scenic cranberry bog as the sun was coming down. Wilma loved walking and exploring, meeting lots of people, and the energy of the beach. A wonderful day in Cape Cod (Rating: 4).
Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Nauset Lighthouse (also referred to as the Nauset Beach Lighthouse) in Eastham, Massachusetts, part of Cape Cod. I actually have blogged about this Lighthouse in my “Throwback” blog but decided to highlight it again as I took minimal photos on the first visit, as well as Wilma had not visited this memorable Lighthouse. Shadow, My Mom, and I originally visited three years ago.
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.
I was excited to Adventure to the Nauset Lighthouse a second time as it is unusually colorful and absolutely scenic. We parked at the nearby beach and made the short trek over to the Lighthouse. Wilma was eager to explore, anticipating the enthusiasm in my steps. We found a scenic path to the side of the Lighthouse that led us to the top of the small hill and directly to the Lighthouse. The scenery was brown, yet had character. There were benches near the Lighthouse, and several educational kiosks. The roar from the ocean was fantastic, one of my favorite sounds of nature. We lingered around the area, making several rounds. On our way back I noticed several overgrown paths to the beach, so we ventured over to observe the scene. I was shocked to find us high above the beach, almost a large dune, yet we were in a wooded-like area. The site was just spectacular, and the sounds magnificent. I do not remember if we visited this beach on our initial visit, but definitely will be adding it to a future Adventure. One of my favorite photographs from today came at the Nauset Lighthouse of Wilma in the brown landscaping with the Nauset Lighthouse in the background. So glad both Shadow and Wilma were able to Adventure to the Nauset Lighthouse. I will include the photographs from our initial visit below at the bottom, but you also can search for the Nauset Lighthouse in my search box to read more about our first visit in April 2017. Definitely one of the beautiful Lighthouses in New England (Rating: 4).
April 2017 Visit
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!
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).
