One Lighthouse, Two Views

The only thing I love more than lighthouses is chocolate. And margaritas. And some other things. But what I’m trying to say is I love when the land around lighthouses lends itself to climbing around to get different angles of said lighthouse. Portland Head in Portland, Maine, is one such lighthouse. Here are two distinctly different angles, shot at sunrise Monday.

A brisk New Years walk

Hubby and I went out today to Glouchester (Glooster) Mass., to see the Eastern Point Lighthouse. We walked all the way down the breakwater, and the wind was so strong, most of my photos were blurry. Did get a few, however.

The lighthouse. Quite an excursion just to get to it.

Nice, cold day to start the new year. I hope you all have as interesting a year as we had on its first day. Happy 2013!

Travel Theme: Curves

How many times am I going to try to post this and fail (thanks WP!) before I finally give up and let WP win? One more, apparently. And I’m going to post just a little, then see if it will let me edit to add the rest, so I’ll at least have something here!

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is Curves, and while I have some, I’m not going to show them to you. You’ll have to settle for photos instead.

Many different curves in these benches in Strawberry Field, which is part of NYC’s Central Park.

This is where I went back to edit, and added two more photos. WP turned it into a slide show, which is cool. The two photos not shown here were both shot in Massachusetts; one of a lighthouse on Cape Cod, and the other of a fence in Houghs Neck, south of Boston.

Thanks to Ailsa for the idea, and hopefully I get this thing figured out so my next post doesn’t cause me quite so much stress!!
