ABC Wednesday - L is for Lighthouse

(The Wordless Wednesday post is beneath this post.)


L is for Lighthouse .......




cape Neddick or the Nubble lighthouse



It was early evening by the time we arrived at the Cape Neddick Lighthouse, and the light was falling just right on this famous landmark.

Affectionately know as The Nubble, this light resides on a small island of steep rocks that is accessible by a seat that is hung from a pully line. It extends across from the mainland for supplies to be sent across.

This photo was taken last autumn, and it is always crowded there with bus loads of tourists. When we were there, there were two weddings going on, a man ocean fly-fishing, and divers just coming in from an evening dive.

Photographers, artists, and sightseers of all ages were vying for a spot on the rocky shore to enjoy this historic beauty.
