One couldn’t have asked for better weather. It has been comfortably warm during the days with nice cool nights for sleeping. On top of that we are surrounded with great friends enjoying sightseeing together, eating together, and sitting around the virtual campfire together.
Yesterday we visited the Portland Head Lighthouse which is Maine’s oldest lighthouse as well as one of the most photographed lighthouses in America. The lighthouse is located on the site of the old Fort Williams in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. It began construction under orders from George Washington in 1787 and it was completed and activated in 1791.
From our parking lot we walked past the Battery Blair which held the “big boys”; they where the 12″ Rodman’s mounted on disappearing carriages.
You can approach the lighthouse from many different directions and angles making for great photo ops.
Here are a few photographs of our entourage as we were walking about the park grounds.
In yesterday’s post we included photos of the Averys and the Halls, so today here’s the rest of the group.
The grounds are just wonderfully landscaped with beautiful views in all directions.
The cry went up, “Feed Me, Feed Me”. So we made our way back to Freeport for some barbeque and, no, we didn’t eat naked.
This lifestyle is sooooo magnificent. Isn’t it just wonderful to live in the “land of the free and the home of the brave”? God Bless America!!!
