Friday Foto Follow-up

Tori's story was furry interesting yesterday, wasn't it? The lady talking to us in that one pic is from Illinois, and was on a tour of New England's lighthouses (she had been to 37 of them so far! )

We decided to follow up with a few pics mom has taken of our local lighthouses.
This is what the Castlehill Light looks like from the Bay - mom took this when she was sailing with her friends.
And this is Goat Island Lighthouse. It's quite small, but it used to be the only light in the Newport Harbor.

This beauty is the Rose Island Lighthouse. There's a museum inside, and its a bed-&-breakfast. Woo can also stay on for a few days as the "lighthouse keeper", if woo are willing to work! There's some cool things on the island.
Our bipeds took a boat to Rose Island, and mom found a rather obscure lighthouse -- Rose Fido's Lighthouse! Ha-roo roo roo!

This is Beavertail Lighthouse, on the tip of Conanicut Island.
(It's just across the bridge from our island)

These lighthouses are furry popular subject matter for the local artists - our mom included. Here's a few of the paintings she has done that highlight our local lights!





And so, we take our leave, as the sun sets over the bay beyond Castlehill Light,

See woo later, alligator!

Oooooh, those PAINTINGS are so gorgeous! And we love the lighthouses. Oddly, we don't seem to have any of those here in Kansas. You'd think they'd have one or two at the Kansas Ocean, wouldn't you?
More importantly, are there goats on Goat Island?
Love,
Ammy
