Maine Light Houses: What More Can I Say?

Plenty! I wish we could have seen more. Below are a few photos of the lighthouses we viewed.  During our sunset trip with Howie, which I mentioned in the last few posts, we traveled to see the Bear Island Light House. While it is on Acadia, it is privately run, and one cannot access it by land.

Nubble Light House, which many of you know through photos as it is one of the most photographed light houses in the US,  is on Cape Neddick in York, Maine. That was where KI and I celebrated my getting a job offer( which I took!)

When I took these photos I really focused on taking total landscape or waterscape photos. I did not want close-ups, and I wanted everything in focus. Howie’s lesson gave me some great pointers, some of which I knew and some I didn’t, to accomplish that.

Now for some more RV travel tips from RV newbies… Places like light houses on summer weekends don’t really accommodate large vehicles. Lots of tourists and lots of drivers not paying attention. Luckily KI is a great driver.

Some more advice…even though we have a GPS built into the RV, the GPS does not know how big we are and directed us down a narrow, gravel, residential road in York. So don’t go blindly following the GPS directions. Sometimes it does not know the best directions!

We learned many  important facts while visiting these light houses, but one stood out-the US has more light houses than any other country. Click on the link here to learn more about light houses.

Mom, this post is for you. Enjoy the light houses!

    I love lighthouses but we don’t have too many in Australia. Congrats on the job, what is it? Lol about the GPS, sorry, but I can just imagine a huge RV going down a slim road. BTW, I don’t think we have seen a photo of the RV on any of your blogs.
