L is for Lighthouse

In order to get a break from the hot and muggy city, the World Cup socks and I took a tour of Little Brewster Island on Sunday afternoon.

Little Brewster is home to Boston Light, the oldest, continually used,Satsky
lighthouse in the country.  The original lighthouse was blown up by the British in 1776 as they evacuated Boston.  The current tower was completed in 1783 with 14 feet added in 1859.

A great way to spend a summer afternoon.  I highly recommend this trip.  The National Park Service guide and the auxiliary Coast Guard staff were full of information. 

More photos from the trip are here

  1. Gorgeous! Was it less muggy?

  2. Oh, that looks like a LOT of fun.

    I’ve been looking for something to entertain some out of town guest this week. Perhaps we’ll head out there.
