Cape Cod ~ Chatham to Provincetown (Pt 2)

Nauset Lighthouse icon of Cape Cod potato chips.

The Lighthouses of Cape Cod are so famous that they even have their own iconic brand of Potato Chips!
So how can I not visit Lighthouses while there?
They were a must to see.
(BTW, those chips are delicious!  especially with some cold beer ~ this is not an advertisement & I get no commission 😀 )

The Chatham Lighthouse had a tour for school children when we were there so they also had a US Coast Guard vessel on display.

The Lighthouse also functions by day, showing its slow constant timed flash.

The Highland Lighthouse, Cape Cod’s 1st lighthouse, was built in 1857. It was actually moved 453ft further inland away from a cliff.
Today, the moved Lightouse still functions, operated by the US Coast Guards, and if interested, you can read more of its history here.

For afar I took a shot of the Woodend Light but unfortunately we did not have enough time to seek it out to explore further.
