Lighthouse Craft Tutorial &
Books We Love: The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge
WOW – What a Lighthouse Kind of Day!
I saw the headline”Plum Island Lighthouse Offers Free Tours” on The Town Common newspaper this morning and the next thing I knew I was making a lighthouse craft on the deck with my daughter – funny how things just happen. (This post originally ran in June of 2013)
Books We Love
Our family loves visiting lighthouses – it all started when we were staying at a friends beach house and saw this book on their shelf, The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray Bridge by Hildegarde Swift and Lynd Ward. We read it to the kids that night as a bedtime story and my husband read the book jacket and said “I know where this is in New York – we should check it out.” So we did!
It was a great day and when we had the pictures developed (yes it was before our digital life) we pasted them into the our own book as a keepsake.
