Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

Maine

Here in New England dreamy often means a trip to the Maine coast. Under the endless blue sky, with a lighthouse in the distance, you can enjoy the sight and sound of the waves lapping at the rocky shore.

History: After a number of ship wrecks on the ledge marking the northern entrance to Portland’s outer harbor, the Ram Island Ledge Light Station was built in 1903-05.

The lighthouse was automated in 1959, added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988, and changed to solar in 2001.

In 2010, it was sold to an individual for $190,000 to ensure its preservation.

    You did capture “dreamy” in this spectacular shot!
    I wonder how many lighthouses are privately owned? Probably not too many! That would be another dream!

    I like bits of history and enjoyed my 2 visits to Maine. It is a gorgeous place with many untouched areas which harbor special natural wonders.
    My Great Grandfather brought his family to settle from Sweden into Rockport, Massachusetts. I spent a few summers there. One of my good friends moved from Ohio to Derry, NH. 🙂 New England is a wonderful part of our country.
