Lighthouses of Cape Cod

Nauset Lighthouse
 On a recent trip out east, my husband and I took a day trip down to Cape Cod to photograph a few of the lighthouses along the coast.  The photo above shows Nauset lighthouse.  If this one looks familiar to you it is because it is on out package of Cape Cod Potato Chips.  In the 1800's this lighthouse was an important navigational aid, today it is fully automated and used as a private navigation aid.
Chatham Lighthouse


Here is a link to an article I wrote for Review This on   Chatham Lighthouse   .  It is pictured in the photos above and below here.  This lighthouse, built in 1823, was one of two "twin" lighthouses and is located on the "elbow" of Cape Cod.  The second lighthouse was relocated to Eastham and is pictured at the beginning of this article.






Three Sisters Lighthouses
These three lighthouses once were located on the Eastham coast of Massachusetts.  Due to erosion they needed to be moved.  Today they reside in a park near the Nauset lighthouse for tourists to view of piece of history.                                                            


Stage Harbor Lighthouse
The Lighthouse above is Stage Harbor light.  This light operated from 1880 to 1933.  Today it serves as a private residence.
