Beavertail Lighthouse Field Trip

The boys and I headed to Beavertail Lighthouse a few weeks ago.  

We had never been but had heard it was a lovely park.  The weather was just perfect for visiting the ocean and we were excited to see the lighthouse up close.  Unfortunately, the museum and mini aquarium were already closed for the season.  We vowed to go back one day in the spring to check them out.

There were signs everywhere and we learned all about the history of the area

Our lunch view.

Checking out the foundation of the original lighthouse

We enjoyed seeing the cruise ships in the harbor 

Checking out tide pools; Alec stumbled upon a few with some rather large fish.
He kept trying to get them back under the water. 

Evan loved this rock formation; two types of rocks meet and he thought
it looked just like a dragon's back.

We saw so many neat rock formations and marveled over all the layers of rock.

  1. My husband and I have a fascination with light houses and have been to most of them in Michigan. What a great little trip!

    1. We have quite a few up and down the New England coast and I decided we really need to try and make an effort to see more of them.

  2. I see we are neighbors!

    My husband and I haven't been to Beavertail in such a long time. There really is no excuse as it is only about an hour from us. :-) It truly is such a beautiful place.

    Thanks for sharing your unschooling field trip! It brought back nice memories of my homeschooling days. :-)

    1. I had never been before but we will definitely be going back. Funny enough we tend to visit for Wetherill a few times each year and just never realized how close those two places were.

  3. I love Lighthouses and this one is gorgeous, si is it´s surrounding :)

    1. It really was amazing out on the point like that. My boys loved walking all around on the rocks.

  4. Joanne, what a great way to spend the day. My hubby and I love going to the historic parks anytime we travel. We've learned so much about our country and heritage xo
