This is a winter view of the Gurnet Lighthouse, viewed from the beach in Saquish (Plymouth, Massachusetts USA). The erosion from the most recent storm, the Blizzard of 2011 was so evident! Taken 1/3/11. Please view large

Some history on the Gurnet:
The seven-mile long, 27-acre peninsula known as the Gurnet is at the northern border of Plymouth Bay. The name “Gurnet” apparently came from similar areas in England, which were named for the abundant fish of the same name. Plymouth developed a significant fishing industry, with 75 fishing vessels by the 1770s. Coastal and foreign trade based in Plymouth helped make it one of the major ports of colonial America, and nearby Duxbury and Kingston also became important centers for trade and shipbuilding. The local maritime traffic necessitated a navigational aid at the Gurnet.
