Another shot of my favorite lighthouse! The setting sun was getting to it, and I just barely made it to the other side to get this shot! My mother would have had a fit if she had seen where I was standing. I was too excited to be scared, but I was very careful!!! :o)
This lighthouse was constructed on the order of President George Washington, in 1787.
The Portland area is full of scenic outlooks and lightshouses including the “three sisters” area on Cape Elisabeth.
Every time you visit the light house you are in for a treat, whether it be the clanging of the buoys, the setting or rising sun, fog drifting in, the lowly foghorn sounds, and don’t forget the ocean crashing to shore!

    It doens’t get much better than this, beautiful time of day, that one light at the top caught, and the sea.. who could ask for more.

  • You bet Mary! Too bad you cann’t hear the waves crashing, and the fog horns with their low, gentle warning! I had to make myself leave that night! Take care, Linda
