Part Four of A Few Days Away
Well, the walk to the lighthouse was 90% uphill, or so it seemed. Thank goodness for the sights along the way to coax us on. We were getting pretty weary when we saw the lighthouse peaking up ahead of us the top of the hill in this picture. How encouraging that was, knowing the goal was in sight. Well, as we got to the top of the hill, it was almost like a mirage. It was there all right, but there was no straight way to it. From that point the road wound around and we were pushing, but eventually we made it. We reached the goal!
The other picture is a view from the lighthouse. Now we knew that around a few more corners there was the gorgeous Mohegan Bluffs which we had seen before. We just did not have it in us. So after enjoying the view, we continued our journey back down.
