Another New England summer came to a close, but the early September weather still looked promising. Now that the crowds had subsided and the kids were back in school, it seemed like an opportune time for a daytrip or two. New England is known for lighthouses, and we decided to make a small tour of some of the more accessible ones. After a little homework, we identified about two dozen that looked worthy of visiting. So we began our route in Connecticut and wound up the coast of southern New England over the course three successive weekends. We ended our tour on Cape Cod and even made the journey out to Nantucket. Plans are already being drafted for a similar excursion to view the northern New England lights once the Spring thaw arrives.
