A Hudson Valley Kayak Trip: The Saugerties Lighthouse

I just wanted to share some photos of my recent kayak trip to the beautiful Saugerties Lighthouse. The lighthouse, located at the confluence where the Esopus Creek meets the Hudson River, was built in 1869 and, like all other lighthouses, has seen its fair share of historical ups and downs. Currently it’s owned by a young couple that has transformed it into a perpetually-full bed and breakfast with public tours given on Sundays. The best part is that the grounds are free and open to the public–including your furry friends. Accompanying me was my mother (aka Ling Ling) and her beau Craig. We went there two days in a row because it’s just an awesome place to hang out. Enjoy the photos! I hope they encourage you to get outside and enjoy our last remaining days of nice weather before winter comes along to bite us in the arse!

    Love the photos! And it’s always great to hear when establishments are fur-friend-friendly.
