Rose Island Lighthouse tour on January 23

The Rose Island Lighthouse Foundation in Newport, Rhode Island, is offering the rare chance to visit the island lighthouse in winter. Here's the note I just received:

Come help support the lighthouse during the winter months.

We are excited to offer a wonderful opportunity with the assistance of Oldport Marine Services to schedule a trip out to the lighthouse this Saturday January 22 at 1:30 PM. No reservations necessary -- just stop in and purchase your tickets at the Oldport Office. The total trip time is 1.5 hrs.

Adults $15
Children $10

This is your chance to enjoy a beautiful Saturday on the water and to get out of the house. The island is open for walking and as always there is great beach glass to be found!

For more info call weekdays 401-847-4242 or 401-429-8944 on weekends.

We hope to see you there.
