On our recent trip to Maine, we visited the Rockland Harbor Breakwater Light.
The first harbor light in 1827 was an oil lamp on a wooden tripod. The breakwater was constructed from 1881 to 1899 with granite blocks cut and placed end to end in water up to 70 feet deep. The current light was constructed in 1902.
I walk every day, but this is some kind of walking adventure on granite blocks that differ in size and height. There are some gaps that are 6-8″ wide and some that are close to a foot deep. A mature woman like myself walked this almost two mile round trip while looking down in order to keep from killing herself. 🙂
In 1981, the light was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
