  2. Indeed if I had to pick one single symbol of the New England coast, it would be a lighthouse. Inland? The small, white clapboard church.

    The lighthouse that I’ve been closest to is the one at Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard. It’s the same style as these and equally beautiful! You are fortunate to live by so many of them!

    I love love lighthouses. Of course there’s nary a one in Colorado, but Michigan had its share on treacherous places along the Great Lakes.

    We visited Portland and enjoyed the setting on that point along with the lighthouse and museum. A most generous, informative museum host that day.

  9. Beautiful photos of these lighthouses. They are a treasure. I live in the Great Lakes region where lighthouses have been invaluable for navigating in the past.

    Do you know the band, from Maine, I think, called Schooner Fare? They do a great song about the light at Portland Head.

    I just love where you live (except for the snow part) – so many interesting places and history! Love your collage and really got to looking at it. Thought it looked like some big waves coming at that Ram Island Ledge Light and it looked like it was the one in the distance of the Portland Head Light and so I Googled! The Ram Island one has an interesting history. I love that it is now solar powered. Thanks for the education!


  12. There are some lighthouses on the Great Lakes as well, but yours have a special character.

    Wonderful photos! I love lighthouses. I heard an excellent talk on New England lighthouses by Jeremy D’Entremont so now I’ve added a area lighthouse tour to my bucket list. So far I’ve only visited the one in Portsmouth, the Portsmouth Harbor Light.


  16. Wonderful photos!
    Lighthouses have always been beautiful beacons to many sea travelers. They have many meanings to others. My MIL loves the fact they guide and help travelers when there seems to be no other help available. Anyway, now that she is retired, her and her 3 buddies all travel to cool lighthouses around the US.
