Eastern Point Lighthouse: Part 2

So here we are, back at the lighthouse one more time.





Looking out into the Atlantic and directly towards the sun, bringing into focus the silhouette of a lobster boat. A favorite view of mine.



Elise was a little freaked out by the sound of the waves lashing against the rocks under the breaker. She was looking down to see if she could see the water, but couldn't.

There I am, freezing. At least the Jackie O sunglasses helped to keep the wind out of my eyes!



I do believe they are being stalked, which can only mean one thing ... bait on board.


The following photos were taken by Elise. Remember she had a fingerprint on her lens, but with a little texture added, overall they came out pretty good. Kind of like a postcard.

This is as far as we went on Dogbar breakwater, just far enough for Elise to find a rock to put her camera on. The wind was whipping and it was cold. I photoshopped out my hair that was standing up straight. Who really needs to see that anyway?


Looking back towards the city of Gloucester. Thanks for coming along! We'll be headed up to Rockport soon for a little lunch.

What a beautiful day for a beautiful mother and daughter! I really like the shot of the lobster boat in the sunlight.

You two beauties!!!

I loved the shot of the diamond water shimmering. I have been avoiding those shots on the lake, but I think I will play with them a bit more to make the most of the shining sun on the water instead..this effect was magnificent!

They are all great photos - really like the one of the lobster boat and sparking water. A very pretty Mother and Daughter team.

I have a girlfriend that's a blonde and has dark long, long, long lashes. Oh what I would give for her lashes. Looks as though Elise has that unfortunate problem too.. LOL What a beauty she is.

Hi Sharon. I enjoyed this trip to Eastern Point Lighthouse...wind in hair and fabulous views. FAB.

BTW Thank Elise for sharing the map. Now I can see exactly where you were.

Chatelaine said...

I can almost feel the wind chill! The water is a beautiful dark blue, it had to be very cold.

Great shots of the area. Looks like a fun time.

Mary said...

Sharon, you and Elise are both beauties and talented, to boot! :) Wonderful pictures!

Pat said...

Sigh. I'm green with envy. Love the lighthouse and breakwater pictures. Your daughter looks a lot like you. Really enjoyed these beautiful photos!

The fingerprint shots give it that faded, vintage '70s look. You shots of Gloucester are fun to see.

Eve said...

I also love the faded shots and the sun is wonderful. You two look like sisters!!! Great photos and what a great time you must have had!
