Happy Fall Y’all as my Southern friends would say! It’s still miserably hot down here in Florida and is not feeling like Fall at all. I noticed people were bundled up during the last Red Sox game in Boston and I’m extremely jealous. I’m so ready for the cooler temps!!
This month’s desktop wallpaper is of sunrise at Point Judith Lighthouse in Narragansett, Rhode Island from our trip to New England. We visited this lighthouse the day before in the evening, but the fog rolled in and we weren’t able to see much more than the light at the top of the lighthouse. Thankfully, the next morning, the fog had gone away and we were able to capture a beautiful sunrise. One of my favorite things about New England is the rocky shorelines and I always try to capture the rocks in my photos whenever I can.
I found some interesting facts about Point Judith and the lighthouse while researching its history: Point Judith extends out over a mile into the Atlantic Ocean and has plagued mariners since the first European ships visited the area. Heavy seas and dense fog, which frequent the point, and nearby dangerous shoals such as Squid Ledge have led to the area being one of a number of sites known to sailors as a “Graveyard of the Atlantic.” The name of the point, which forms the western side of the entrance to Narragansett Bay, is most likely derived from the Tribe of Judah in the Bible, as towns named Jerusalem and Galilee are located nearby.

October is shaping up to be a busy month with lots of photo excursions planned including a trip to the local fair. I love visiting all the animals and checking out all the exhibits. It’s always a good time.
Peace, Love, and Happy Travels!
