What's not to love about the beautiful state of Maine. Lighthouses, beaches, scenic marsh land and of course lobster. I love everything about Maine. It's easy to see why I think Portland Head Lighthouse is one of the most charming New England destination you can visit. This is why every summer while visiting my good friend Mary, I make sure we have a visit. I feel so fortunate to have Mary from Ocean Breezes and her husband Ron in charge of the sightseeing. They could have jobs as Maine tour guides. They know the history of almost every nook and cranny.
An interesting fact about Portland Head Lighthouse is that it is the most visited, most painted and most photographed of all lighthouses in New England. Looking at the photo I believe you can see why. I myself take dozen of photos every time I visit.
The very first time I visited the lighthouse it was high tide and the waves were crashing against the rocks. A heavy fog began rolling in from the open sea and then as though on cue the resonant sound of the fog horn started to blow. I was in awe. It is a memory that I remember vividly and treasure still. Thank you Mary and Ron for another memorable visit to what is now one of my favorite destinations
