    I have a love of the lighthouses. My favorite is Nubble Light and every year I go to Two Lights State Park and make a visit down there too. Thank you all for sharing the photos. They are spectacular. I guess I get too used to Scituate Light as I don’t live far from it.

    Thank you for the beautiful photo of Nubble Light. I have been to Nubble Light many times and have one of my pictures of Nubble Light hanging in my office. It brings back some nice memories all year long.

    I app;aud Yankee’s efforts to promote lighthouses, which are among the most historic structures in the U.S. I want to make people aware of the American Lighthouse Foundation (ALF), the largest lighthouse preservation organization on the East Coast. ALF cares for more than 20 lighthouses and has about a dozen chapters. See for more information.

    It is a great day for me when I can find and photograph one of the countless New England lights-that are so reachable..either by land or sea.

    I have always had a interest and facination with Lighthouses….My Kitchen is filled with lighthouses, of all sizes and pictures and curtains. You name it. I would love to visit one…..I have never been in one and the idea of staying in one sounds wonderful……Maybe some day It will be in my budget…….

    my son and his family live within walking distance of the Portland Head Light. Everytime my wife and I visit we never fail to visit the Portland Head Light. What a wonderful sight to behold
