Lakeshore Adventures

I have to admit that I am enjoying the lakeshore this summer. After leaving Hannah at camp yesterday, Ben and I decided to check out Fort Oswego and see if we could get a glimpse of the Oswego lighthouse. Tho old fort was closed (We'll have to try another day) but we took the time to walk around the perimeter, visit the Post Cemetery, and read the markers.
From the lakeside of the fort you can see the lighthouse. Currently owned by the Coast Guard, it is not open to the public, but the city of Oswego is in the process of procuring the property and maybe one day we will have the opportunity to visit. The lighthouse sits way out in the water at the end of a very long pier where the Oswego river empties into Lake Ontario. It was fun to see the fishing boats out there and watch the seagulls flying in circles, but we couldn't stay long. After checking out a few of the sights, we headed back to the van and made it home to church just ten minutes late for the evening service.


  1. It's wierd how I grew up so close to this lake and took it all for granted.

    Beautiful photography, Mart.

  2. I have taken it for granted too, but I intend to appreciate all it has to offer this year. Maybe this week I'll get to watch the sailboats come in...

    Oh, and thank you.

  3. Glad you are enjoying old haunts and sharing the views. Very informative and lovely. Come wish T. a happy birthday if you get a chance.

  4. Martha, I don't know if Gordon wrote the song you asked about, but he has been writing songs for forty years so he may have. He did write others that have been recorded by some big name gospel singers. Thanks for coming by. Pappy

  5. What a beautiful lighthouse. It reminds me of the one we visited years ago in Porland Maine.

    The pictures are lovely.

  6. This is really very beautiful.
