What a great weekend had with friends in the charming historic seaside town of Noank, Connecticut at the Morgan Point Lighthouse. A colleague of Brian invited us up to his in-law's family home that is the restored Morgan Point Lighthouse... little did he know about a little blog called Shorely Chic :)

The lighthouse was built in 1868 and bought by our friend's father in 1991 in a completely dilapidated state. Since then, the lighthouse has has been transformed into a warm home filled with the most extensive nautical collection outside of a museum I've ever seen.

Let's go for a little tour, shall we?

picture perfect weather and boats galore...

most of the bedrooms and living area were in the house to the left

possibly the best lobster roll I've ever had

And the charming town which really made you feel like you were stepping back in time:

  10. I was born and raised in Connecticut and my family & still lives there now (I had the misfortune of having to move to PA a few years ago). I came across your blog accidentally today and I am SO happy I did !! The lighthouse looks nothing like I remember... they did an amazing job with the renovations! I'm going home for a visit in 2 weeks and when I visit a friend in New London I am going to swing by and see it up close. Thanks for the great pics!
