Lisa loves animals and has dogs, rats, cats, guinea pigs, and snakes. She is passionate about animal rescue and live music - traveling across the country to see a favorite band is a pretty regular occurrence! Being out hiking in the woods enjoying the scenery with her beloved dogs is another favorite hobby, and also checking out the Pokemon Go scene in whatever city she happens to be in at any given time (coffee and dog leash in hand).

Lighthouses are such charmingly quaint symbols of coastal life. Did you know there are 14 active lighthouses in Connecticut, plus six that are no longer being used? Not only are they beautiful, but they also have played an important part in our maritime economy. Their roles have diminished some in modern times with the development of computer-aided navigation. However, they still warn sailors of rocky ground and obstacles that they might otherwise miss. The Constitution State has so much history as an important New England seaport. If you’re fascinated by Connecticut history and want to learn more, a great place to do so is at the Stonington Harbor Light.
