Highland Light, previously known as Cape Cod Light, is an active lighthouse on the Cape Cod National Seashore in North Truro. Authorized by George Washington in 1797, it is the oldest and tallest lighthouse on Cape Cod. The grounds are open year-round, while the lighthouse is open to the public from May until late October, with guided tours available.
We took a drive to Truro the other day to see Highland Light. It was just spectacular and the stories about it are amazing. Did you know that it was moved 450 feet to its present site in 1996 because it got too close to the cliff and was in danger of falling off? If you go inside the Gift Store, there is a short video that tells you all about it. What a feat!
Have you ever been to Highland Light? It is a must if you travel to Cape Cod!
The sunrise this morning was beautiful at Meetinghouse Pond in Orleans on Cape Cod.
The colors are are just spectacular!
What do you think?
When we decided to build a home here on Cape Cod last summer, we ordered a special mailbox that we could look forward to as we packed and got ready to leave Colorado.
It just arrived in the mail and I love it! It is perfect for our love of the beach and the shore birds on the Cape! Love that little Oystercatcher!
(I blocked our address which is printed in pretty red letters so that you could not write me lots of letters!!)
This scenery was stunning on the Town Cove in Orleans on Cape Cod early this morning. Everything looked so pristine!
Or… do you like the retro black and white photograph better?
Yesterday was one of the most beautiful days that I have seen here on Cape Cod! The trails were busy with bikers and hikers and the beaches were busy with people enjoying the spectacular day!
Some kids were even in the water! Amazing for October 11th, huh?
It doesn’t get much better than this!
I love the pretty pink Hibiscus flowers that grow wild along the beaches on the east coast and Cape Cod.
Their pistil and stamens are so pretty and delicate, don’t you think?
