This morning I woke up early and decided to venture out a bit and explore Portland, Maine. It’s just an hour’s drive from where I live. I took a few hundred photographs and will post a widdled-down set on Flickr (I’m “jmimages”) tonight or tomorrow morning. For this post, I thought I’d share a picture of the lighthouse that I stopped at on my way to the old port area. This is actually in Cape Elizabeth. The lighthouse is called “Portland Head Light” and was first light on January 10, 1791. It was built at the very location where soldiers used to keep lookout for British attacks in 1776. There are rumors that it’s one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. Well… here’s another to add to the bunch. 🙂
Oh…and if you like sailing, definitely check out my flickr page in a bit. I went sailing on a 100 year old schooner!
