    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…….

  • 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 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 http://www.lighthousefoundation.org for more information.

  • 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 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.
