Martha’s Vineyard Lighthouses
One of the things we were most excited about on our New England trip were the lighthouses of Martha’s Vineyard. Picturesque and nautical, the two lighthouses that we visited really made us feel like we were in the Northeast and of course, we had to document the experience.
The white lighthouse in these pictures was actually visible from our hotel room while the brick lighthouse was a 30 minute drive to the north side of the island. For the white one, we woke up early in the hopes of catching the sunrise and then went later on (since the morning was chilly) for the brick one.
A New England Change Of Pace + Perspective
It’s funny how easily we’re inspired when we travel and it’s part of the reason of why we love it so much. Brandon and I both collectively gasped when we looked out our hotel window to the view of the most beautiful lighthouse. Through the entire trip, our pace slowed, we rushed nothing, and we were able to simply reflect on what our surroundings offered and the beauty God provided. I think that this lighthouse post sums up our feelings with matching images. Throughout our time traveling on this trip, we were able to just enjoy each other’s company and bask in the beauty of a brand new place. Neither of us had ever been to New England and the experience was such a memorable time.
So often, even on vacation, we’re rushing around, trying to fit everything in. Brandon and I didn’t get to do every single thing on our list (we were only in Boston for 24 hours after all), but we loved every moment that we had. Looking back, I’d rather have a trip where we cherished the time and slowed our pace, rather than rushing through everything to try and check items off a list.
