This is Highland Lighthouse which also is known as Cape Cod Light on the nautical charts for the region; it's located in North Truro just a bit before Provincetown and the current structure was built in 1857 making it Cape Cod's oldest lighthouse. I had been wanting to go see it for several years and I finally got the chance - huzzah!
Speaking of huzzah, I had Amanda snap a picture of me waving at Claire over in England as I had promised her on Facebook that I would. She was supposed to go stand on a high monument somewhere and wave back but I wasn't wearing my glasses so I might not have seen her!
After walking down to the National Seashore near Provincetown, I asked Jamie to try to replicate my friend Callie's pose from several years ago. Close but no Callie I'm afraid!
After walking around Provincetown a bit, the girls and I had lunch at The Lobster Pot on the waterfront. Amanda decided that she just had to have some calamari which she declared to be very tasty. We all ordered some sort of seafood and it was all quite delicious.
On the way back to our hotel in Hyannis, I made a quick stop at Marconi Beach in Wellfleet as it was the beach that I had taken the girls to many, many years ago on their only other trip to the Cape when we went with their two cousins and my sister-in-law. I had remembered it as being beautiful and I wasn't wrong!
And the final picture of the day, I took this one as Jamie and I were walking back to the car as I liked the way the sun was glowing off of the not-wooden boardwalk and giving it a different sort of light.
All in all, it was a great trip and as soon as soon as I can get my act together, I'll be sharing some pictures and history of all of the lighthouses that I was fortunate enough to see over on The Distracted Wanderer. Just give me some time as sadly, it's back to work tomorrow where I'll have to put in some time if I am going to be able to afford some more wanderings in the future!
