What do you get when you cross a snowman and a vampire?

Frostbite.

Interesting Fact: The Rose Island Light, built in 1870, is on Rose Island in Narragansett Bay in Newport, Rhode Island in the United States. It is preserved, maintained and operated by The Rose Island Lighthouse Foundation.

One of a group of New England lighthouses built to an award-winning design by Vermont architect Albert Dow,[3] Rose Island Light has sisters at Sabin Point, Pomham Rocks, and Colchester Reef. The lighthouse stands atop a bastion of Fort Hamilton, which was built in 1798-1800. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose_Island_Light )

    • Last time I was in Newport I was trying to get a photo of every lighthouse in the area and I didn’t succeed. I only got 4, but they were all quite stunning. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚

      • A friend and I did a bike ride to photograph five lighthouses in the Portland ME area last summer. It was a fun ride and the lighthouses were beautiful. There is a company that will take you on a tour, or you can just do it yourself. Cheers!

      • That is so cool. Thank you very much for sharing this with us, I truly appreciate it. Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚

  1. Love that the little lighthouse still shines away even with the monster bridge nearby. Great photo, and I enjoyed the history as well.

  2. A great place to see lighthouses is in Newfoundland, all 30 plus of them. I know, my wife tried to get to all of them! Cheers.

    • That is amazing, I really hope that one day I will photograph them all. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚
