Portland Head Light

This is perhaps my favorite lighthouse. My friend James and I parked in downtown Portland and did a 24 mile (38 km) bike ride to see five lighthouses on the Maine coast south of Portland. THis past week was rather warm in New England, but the Maine coast was nice and cool.

      It was a great time, thank you. There is a tour operator that takes groups to the same lighthouses but uses a shuttle to reduce the number of miles. We decided to do it on our own. Cheers!

    Lovely shot. I have a signed, tinted, photograph by Fred Thompson of just this scene but with waves crashing over the rocks. I do not know how old it is or how it came to be in my family’s possession in New Brunswick, Canada.

      Thank you. That sounds like an amazing image you have of this lighthouse. It would be fun to go there on a day with heavier surf to get the waves really crashing. Cheers!
