Portland Lighthouse

No, not at Portland Bill in Dorset.  This one is at Portland Head in Maine, USA.

We have been away from home quite a bit recently and I have fallen well behind in both blogging and following the posts of those that I follow.  I’m sorry for this and hopefully I will be more active from now.

Our last trip was to Maine, to visit our oldest son where lives with his family.  Whilst there we took an outing to Fort Williams Park, just south of Portland, ME, and it was here that I snapped these shots of the Portland Head Light.

This lighthouse claims to be the oldest on the coast of Maine, entering use in January, 1791.  There are some great views over Casco Bay from this headland and it is well worth a visit if you are in the area.
