So when I got home I logged on to Google Earth and Google Maps and went flying over Rockport in search of whatever I could find. I found this:
It's quite long and seems to be in the middle of nowhere. #2 and #3 are rocky ledges or outcrops or baby islands:
If you zoom in you can see that there is nothing on them, just lots of rocks:
The one on the right appears to be covered in white which is probably gull droppings (heaven knows I get to see enough of that on my car.)
So, since I was flying around I decided to take a buzz over Thacher Island which is a few miles south of these mysterious places:
I've been out on Thacher Island many times and it is always a lovely place to visit. This is the South Tower and the keepers' houses:
And this is the North Tower which is out of commission but there is still a light burning inside:
Perhaps someone who knows about the places shown in the first few pictures knows more about them and will fill me in. I'm sure all the local sailors and fishermen go by them all the time but for us land-bound folks they are beautiful mysteries. I'm grateful for Google Earth so I can fly over them and let my imagination run wild.
Thanks for reading.
