The items you find by accident ...

I was trolling around GOOGLE this evening and came across this logo. Seems this was a recreation/amusement area somewhere in the greater Boston area ... it is no longer in operation.

Anyone ever make the trip?

(and, ten minutes later, I found this as well ...)

HAWKES POINT LIGHT HOUSE AT PLEASURE ISLAND
Dramatic memories of the men who went down to the sea in ships are recalled by the light house in Clipper Cove, at Pleasure Island, in Wakefield, Mass. the seaman's guide is a focal point in the authentic multi-million dollar reproduction of an early New England waterfront village. The Park is spread across almost a hundred acres on Route 128, Exit 21A, just outside Boston.
