Palmers Island and Lighthouse

This post is with shots from a walk Lulu and I did last year, and came about on accident in a way I was looking through my recent photos and clicked on last year all be it as an accident and I saw the first shot I shared on this post, and I remembered that walk and decided to edit a few photos for this post
On one of our walks on the Harbor Walk in New Bedford last year we came across a spot where you could walk across a small bit of water to get to this view

Its a little island called Palmers Island and here is some info I found online about it.

It is named ater an original settler of Old Dartmouth, William Palmer, and apparently has a dark history which began when it served as an internment camp during the King Philip’s War in the mid-1670s. This sort of set the tone for the coming years when in its heyday, Palmer’s Island was a very popular destination for what was referred to as a “pleasure resort.” Which is kind of like calling a garbage man a waste management specialist – many locals preferred to call it a whorehouse or drug den.
The island itself is about 6 Acres, and all the structures on the island were destroyed in a hurricane in 38.
Quite an interesting history I knew nothing about when we ventured on to it

But from on the Island you can see the Lighthouse quite well

Palmer Island Light Station is a historic lighthouse in New Bedford Harbor in New Bedford, Massachusetts, USA. The lighthouse was built in 1849 out of stone rubble. It was discontinued when the harbor's hurricane barrier was built in the early 1960s, as its location immediately north of the barrier was no longer an outlying danger and there are lights on either side of the barrier opening.

and also nice views across the water

The first photo looks so calm and peaceful - my first thought was to sit down in the sand and just enjoy the view 😊

this is so cool JJ.
you know these light houses and harbors were so popular back in the days of King Arthur, basically in those days that they were kings amd sailors, conquest upon conquest here and there.

I wonder maybe I'd be a knight then or a village farmer.
unlike these times, everything is so different besides

I'd feel like a god with sonyA7ii in my hands
😍😍

nice one
have a good day

Ohh yeah one can only imagine what they have seen

I know what you mean I love my A7iii, I see there is talk of a A7IV coming out later this year, I may be tempted, but I am so happy with what I have now to be honest

okay great...
but if you ever wish to get a new one and give out the other
I hope I'm number one on your list

Sorry but MY Daughter in Law insist to be in the number one spot

I am not sure if I get a new one or not, but if I do I think I will keep them both, Next year I want to try and get out and get some shots of the extended family playing sports, and have been asked to do some shoots of family which I have generally resisted, maybe with two cameras I may try both

okay... it's cool though

👍🙂👍

Beautiful shots dear, what a beautiful landscape it is. Looks unreal and Imaginary. Wonderful job friend. Keep it up. 😊👍🙏

Thanks kindly your support is appreciated

Have a great day

Wow, definitely an interesting history there. It is nice that you are able to walk around it now. It looks like they have some pretty cool trails setup and all of that. Nice shots!

Its very small but nice to visit, funny thing is so many I have talked to here never even knew the island existed, :)

Apparently it was real run down but about a decade ago they restored botht he Island and Lighthouse and now it is beautiful to explore

That is great!

Nice pictures wish I can visit such someday
