Beacons of Fire: New London Harbor Lighthouse

For all the posts in the Beacons of Fire Series, go here.

Prologue: I love Nora Roberts books, well her books mostly those that she wrote prior to 2009. One of her book is the 1985 romantic novel, One Man’s Art, fourth in her longest series, The McGregor Series. The hero of the story, Grant Campbell, is a loner, rude, surly and impossible, who lives in an old lighthouse. Genevieve Grandeau literally lands on his doorstep during one particular stormy night. The story that follows between Grant and Gennie is what inspired me to look at lighthouses in a different light.

Inspired by this book by Nora Roberts, here I present you my Beacons of Fire Series. Next is the New London Harbor Lighthouse in New London, Connecticut.

When we went for the sunrise shot for November to Waterford Beach Park in Waterford, Connecticut, we came across this lighthouse by the shore. This is locally called as Pequot Avenue Lighthouse but this is the New London Harbor Lighthouse, the oldest and tallest lighthouse in Connecticut. It is also the nation’s fifth oldest light station and the seventh oldest U.S. lighthouse

The side we drove by was the entrance to private residence. I suppose there is another entrance to this lighthouse. Although I assumed that the lighthouse was a private one. Later I came to know that we were looking at it from the private residence side. Duh! 😛

This is one of the five lighthouses that could be seen from the entrance of Long Island Sound. The rising sun made it prettier and at the same time magical.
