Beautiful. I love light houses.
Oh, thank you so much. I’ve been lucky to see many lately. Cheers =)
I’ve only seen one – in California. For me, they are the places of dreams.
You could do a lighthouse tour sometime. You would probably enjoy it.
That’s actually good idea
You could do New England but I think they have them in other areas as well.
I think it was used in the past to help ships knowing their way .wasn t it
Thank you. Yes, that is exactly what they were used for. Today we have GPS but our country still keeps the light houses also. Do you have lighthouses along your coast?
Yes we have one in Alexandria
It is used as a place of picnic for people
It sounds nice. Actually, i just looked and the original lighthouse there was the first in the world!
That is right
Have a nice day
Same to you. Is it already morning there? I just had my evening meal. =)
Now it is 2 after mid night
You’re killing me! 🙂 Great shot! I wanna go…..
Come on…I’ll give you a tour. 😀
I will hold you to that!
You got it!
Have a nice evening
Same to you 😀
nicely composed with the fence leading the eye to the lighthouse… love the texture of the clouds in the sky… beautiful photo!
Thank you, especially for the comment about the leading line. I moved around a bit to set that up. 😀
though Falmouth was just down the road when I was a kid I only went there for ball games, I never saw any of this cool stuff you’ve posted. Another reason to go back
Woods Hole is a really nice part of Falmouth. It is worth spending an afternoon. The downtown also seems nice though I did not spend much time there. Cheers
OK, so I have been to Wood’s Hole, school field trips and the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard. We lived two miles from Hyannis harbor and nearly an hour to Wood’s Hole. But it did reduce the ferry ride considerably. We still took the ferry to Nantucket from Hyannis.
I hope someday you’ll get to experience much more of The Cape
Nantucket is great. We spent a day there a few years back. You should venture up for a visit. =)
All my family is gone now as well as friends. All moved or died. The Cape was magical for me, such a beauty full of cultural and historic significance. I’m just not sure I can do it. Maybe when my grandson is old I’ll show him where gramma grew up.
Sounds like a plan. It has changed. Our family would spend two weeks in a rented cottage every summer in Dennisport. The old arcade is now replaed with condos or something…but much of the Cape is still great.
I understand, I went back in 2010 after 15 years, A block from my home is an intersection with police station (now visitors center), a bank (now gas/convenience store), a Friendly’s (now a cvs) and a wooded area (now the Keltic Kitchen). Even my home was barely recognizable after all the alterations the new owner made – that broke my heart. Everything changes, that’s the nature of life but memories tied to the heart have a harder time dealing with those changes. Thanks for the memoires.
Oh and Dennisport is nice, I went to school with kids from the Dennis hamlets. My cousin lived on swan river in Dennisport. Lots of memories there.
Same here….I don’t go back to the old places on Boston’s South Shore too much. It is all different. Former fields are now strip malls. Did you ever go for ice cream at a place called Sundae School in Dennisport?…It is still around…and expanded to three locations.
No, don’t remember it. It was probably a touristy place, right? We usually went to Friendly’s to avoid the crazys. I’ll see if I can find it next trip. Did you ever eat at a little seafood shack called “Captain Frosty’s” in Dennis? I worked there my summers home from college. They have the best seafood. The clam cakes are to die for.
It was a total tourist place…but we were tourists 😀 Capt Frosty’s sounds familiar but we did not eat out much. Our family rented a cottage..Mom cooked and Dad grilled. We swam and spent all our quarters at Funland.
Captain frostys is a tourist place, only open during season but I worked there so I knew it well. Its on Rt 6A, a beautiful drive. Somewhat touristy but not nearly as busy as anything on Rt 28. There’s lots of nice beaches, Scargo Tower, the hightest point.
I found it on Google Maps…It was a bit out of the area we frequented. I went along 6A a few years back. It is really nice.
