On Maine’s Rock Bound Coast
The 4th order Fresnel lens lights up the night at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse in Bristol, Maine. The 1835 light station is one of the most popular tourist lighthouses on the coast of Maine. The tower is managed by the Friends of Pemaquid Point, a chapter of the American Lighthouse Foundation, and the former keeper’s house is operated by the town of Bristol as the Fisherman’s Museum. The rock formations are among the most beautiful in Maine, but the rogue waves here can be dangerous; over the years a number of people have lost their lives when they were pulled into the sea. Remember, safety first - and respect nature. (Photo by Aj Tinker of www.AjTinkerPhotography.com.)
A Neat Faux
This neat lighthouse facsimile is attached to the Old Salts Deli and Market in Anacortes, Washington. If you stop in, be sure to tell them that you saw a photo of their place in Lighthouse Digest, the lighthouse news and history magazine. (Photo by Debra Baldwin.)
Vintage Cars at Mountain Lighthouse
What a neat combination – vintage cars and a lighthouse. The 104-foot tall Summersville Lake Lighthouse in Mount Nebo, West Virginia looks down upon some pretty cool vintage cars and hot rods. (Photo by Amanda Haddox.)
