SEASON OF LIGHTS

They have an annual “lighting up” night at the Heritage Museum on Cape Cod. I was lucky to be there for this particularly beautiful (and very cold!) evening.

The lights were everywhere. Each tree was wrapped in light, every building outlined by lights. It was an evening of twinkling and shining!

  1. Wow, beautiful pictures! I especially like the last one. The place reminds me of Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.

    • I’ve seen this done with trees in other place … this was just the most extensive lighting I’ve ever seen. I can’t even imagine the electric bill! But it was a treat for the eyes. Pity it was so cold, but they sold a LOT of hot chocolate.

  2. That’s very pretty and Christmassy. It must have been quite a job to deck out the trees with all those lights.

  3. Great choices, Marilyn, and so cheerfully seasonal. I, too, await the re-institution of the pingbacks with great anticipation.

  4. I used to live near a super light show off an interstate with it’s own exit & sign. It was owned by the Catholic church and drew visitors from around the globe. I drove through it a couple of times while living near Belleville, Illinois, my place of birth. The Oregon Zoo has a nice show as well but I’m in bed before the show begins. LOL

    • This isn’t a show, really. They wrap all the trees and everything that doesn’t run away in lights for the season, so any time after dark from early December until after New Year’s, there are lights. But it’s a long drive for us … almost two hours, so this year, we didn’t go.

  5. Don’t be ‘umble, Mrs. A. Your pictorial efforts were requested for display by the event coordinator. Bravo!! I hope there’s a fee. $$
