I was in Cape Cod on 7/19 and saw five lighthouses: Highland (Cape Cod), Nauset Beach, and the Three Sisters of Nauset.

Nice shots- it's very difficult to get all Three Sisters in one shot.

We've been there when both Nauset and the Thre Sisters were open for touring.

I also got to see the "castle" and the golf course from atop Highland on the same trip.

I could be misremembering but I think it was one of the NELL "Lighthouses, Hot Chocolate and You " tours a few years back. They were done in the middle of the winter- hence the hot chocolate. We got into a number of lighthouses not usually open to visitors over the years.

Yeah, I went to the top of Highland (great view) but I wished the three sisters were open because I loved them :)

Tiny ...

When you were at Highland Light, did you walk out
past it and stand where the light was before it was
moved back for preservation

Thanks for sharing your pictures ...
