|Just look at them, do they not make you just get warm and fuzzy?|
|The beautiful walkway leading to the lighthouse|
|Quite spectacular. It was renovated in 1996....and that is all the history we learnt. We had the option of a guided tour or just being able to climb the lighthouse steps, we opted for the second.|
|Some of the 109 steps|
|We made it to the top|
|We were even allowed to walk around the outside which I was surprised about since anything today which could possibly be hazardous is usually prohibited. The scenery was breathtaking.|
|I took this from the Lighthouse Keepers garden.|
|Windows must have been expensive|
|Look at the floors, just gorgeous|
|Hmmm, the crib wouldn't pass many safety tests any more.|
|The girls loved all the open railings.|
|The rooms were all so tiny but it had 3 bedrooms and 2 rooms downstairs. And a lovely little outhouse!|
I steered clear of the beach as much as possible as Lily cannot get her cast wet and getting it filled with sand isn't going to feel very nice but we ventured on to it for a little bit.
|I think they were debating whether to just run in.|
|lily wrote this in the sand and nobody would walk on it, everyone walked around it.|
|Poor old tree didn't survive a storm|
|It was windy today so I was surprised this sailboat wasn't sailing|
|Ding dong child felt safer crawling the sea wall as opposed to,walking it.|
As we drove back on to the Key traffic was gridlocked. Talk about a reality check. The Sony Ericsson Open Tennis Tournament is being played there and it is one road on and one road off. So we sat, and we sat. It didn't dampen our spirits at all and I knew that once we were passed the bridges we would be free and clear and we were, even rush hour traffic wasn't to awful today.
When we got home we sat down and read, The Lighthouse Keepers Daughter . Other than the fact that it was written in Maine and takes place during a harsh winter storm, the girls were able to relate to it more today than ever before. It's such a fabulous book and was a gift from their cousin Joan, in Maine.
Days like today really shouldn't end. Spring break is winding down and we really haven't done much at all. That ginormous cast put a damper on things so we are making up for lost time.
Life is good when you take the slower quieter route.
