Other Cape Cod Adventures

Other than running the half marathon this past weekend, Mike and I also took advantage of being on the Cape and saw some lighthouses. 

If you are late to this party, I have to warn you that we are lighthouse obsessed.  We've seen well over 100 lighthouses and this weekend we were able to see 8 new ones (well I guess not completely new for me since I saw one of them when I was two). 

Cape Cod Lighthouse

 Nauset Lighthouse

Chatham Lighthouse

 Bass River Lighthouse

 Wings Neck Lighthouse (on private property)

 Hyannis Lighthouse (we weren't supposed to go up there but did anyway)

Three Sisters Lighthouse (there are three lighthouses)

The entire reason that we ran the half marathon to begin with was the fact that the course goes right by Nobska Lighthouse.  Mike and I spectated some of the marathon on Sunday before we drove back to Rochester.

We were able to take a few photos with the lighthouse before any runners arrived.

 I was actually running...

Mike was not

Aren't we cute?

We probably couldn't have timed it any better if we tried because about five minutes after we got to the lighthouse, the lead runner arrived! 

Looking good!

We cheered on the runners for a little while, took some more photos and then made our way back home.  

I love that we were able to combine to of our loves: running and lighthouses!


  1. very cool! MY husband and I wanted to go to Cape Cod for a vacation. Such a beautiful area. I had no idea there were so many lighthouses though!

  2. Looks like a great trip! I grew up summering on the Cape - great to see so many familiar sights in this post. One of my favorite races, the Falmouth Road Race, follows a similar course past Nobska Light-- such a pretty (but hilly!)area.

  3. Can't believe that you saw 8 more lighthouses...sounds like an awesome trip!!!

  4. Wonderful pictures! I need to make a visit out to the Cape.

  5. I love the Cape! I've lived here 2 years and still haven't been to all te lighthouses. You saw most of them in a day. Haha! You should definitely come back soon and visit some on the islands. :)

  6. Very cool indeed!!! Your lighthouse obsession reminds me of my mom's obsession with them as well. So many awesome memories visiting lighthouses with her.

  7. Sooo many pretty lighthouses!! Glad y'all had fun :)

  8. That looks like it would be a really pretty course to run! I love lighthouses!

  9. I saw a lot of your lighthouses on instagram- so gorgeous!

  10. I'm glad you guys were able to see so many lighthouses. I have several lighthouse pieces in one of our guest rooms and bathrooms and I always think of you guys when I look at them.

  11. Beautiful pictures, Jamie! Glad you and Mike did some sight-seeing in addition to running your race. :)
