Lighthouses are one of my favorite places to visit when
vacationing in a seaside community.
The New England lighthouses did not disappoint.
Pictured are a few of the many we saw while we were away!!
Pictured first is the lighthouse in Stonington, Ct.
We were in Stonington on August 17, 2014
Next up, the lighthouse in Mystic, Ct.
with the hubs on August 17 as well.
The next lighthouse was in Watch Hill, Rhode Island
we visited here on August 18th.
In Mystic, this old lighthouse was purchased and restored to it's
original appearance and is now a personal residence.
I am certain this would be the best place to be on a nice day ~
but what about a stormy day, oh, I am not so sure about that!!
Talking to the locals is one of the best things you can
do when you are away on vacation.
While we were in Stonington, Connecticut,
I found a local kayaker who had a wealth of information about the area.
He pointed across the water he had just climbed out of,
and talked about a place called Watch Hill.
He said if you've never been, you have to go!!
He talked about an amazing seaside community,
cute shops and fabulous eateries.
He was talking about this beautiful spot in
The brochure reads:
"Pack your sense of wonder...
The remarkable beauty of this historic landmark community
will rewaken your appreciation for life's simple and best pleasures.
One of Rhode Island's most select beach resorts,
Watch Hill embodies the best aspects of New England"!!
And the shops, no words are necessary...be still my heart,
this place is amazing.
My favorite store, once you peak inside, you will not be wondering why.
The store windows are just as dreamy as the shops...
