And so we go back to Gloucester. I have so many photos from the afternoon my daughter and I spent there, I hope you won't mind me showing you a whole lot more!
Some of the photos in this post are mine and some are from my daughters camera, like the one below.
Elise thought it would be funny to take a photo of the map. I'm glad she did! Eastern Point is at the very bottom of the photo by Niles Pond and Brace Rock.
Off to the side of the parking lot the Crows were looking for food amongst the rocks. Seemed a bit unusual to me but food is food, and it was cold!
Looking back towards the parking lot from the base of the lighthouse: I was amazed and saddened by how much trash was on the beach. It was everywhere. What are people thinking? Jay, from Cape Ann Images, tells me there is a big clean up in the Spring. Thank goodness!
Elise kept turning around and photographing me the whole way up the path. LOL! Unfortunately she had somehow put a big fingerprint smudge on her lens causing all her photos from Eastern Point to be blurry. To compensate I added a texture to kind of make it look like it's supposed to be blurry ; )
And yeah, my hair was sticking straight up most of the time from the wind!
So nice to be able to get up close to this beautiful lighthouse.
And then some kid obviously carved his initials and the year above.
Turn around and this is the view . . .
1/2 mile long Dogbar Breakwater
Do you feel like you were there right along with us? Was your hair blowing in the wind too?
More to come!
