Shining a Light on the Maine Coast

Happy National Lighthouse Day! In honor of the occasion, here is a photo I took a few years ago of Nubble Light, in York, Maine, officially called the Cape Neddick Light Station. A nubble is a knob or lump, and refers here to the lumpy rock of the cape where the station sits. We saw it when we took a day trip to the coast while visiting my sister in New Hampshire. It’s one of those iconic views that looks just the way it seems a New England lighthouse should. In fact, it is such a classic example of a lighthouse that a photo of it is included on The Voyager spacecraft, along with images of the Great Wall of China and the Taj Mahal.

Built in 1897, Maine’s Cape Neddick Light Station, or Nubble Lighthouse, is on the National Register of Historic Places.
