|A close-up of Bass Harbor Head Light|
Our first trip to Maine....but probably not our last, was in September, 2016. Showcased in this article from Smithsonian.com are 6 lighthouses, with some interesting facts. "Shipwrecks, poetry and alien encounters: The lighthouses dotting Maine's coast pack a double punch of beauty and history." Lighthouses are rich in history. This book packs a punch with information on LIGHTHOUSES IN MAINE.
Pictured below are the 15 that we saw......(this trip).
They are in no particular order.
We enjoyed learning about, and photographing these beautifully distinctive lighthouses.
That's a lot of light!
We'll catch the other 45+ on our next trip to Maine!
