I’d Like to Go To: The West Quoddy Head Lighthouse
The West Quoddy Head Lighthouse in Lubec, Maine has been a place that I’ve wanted to visit for many years now. Maybe 2016 will be the year that I finally make the ride up to see the stripey lighthouse. It sits in the eastern-most corner of the United States. That’s kind of neat – to go as far as you can within our borders.
While looking at some of the lighthouse pictures on Flickr, it seems like Lubec might be a good area for me to finally get to see the milky way, which I’m slightly obsessed with. Have you seen it?
I wish I had some insight in to what it is that I find so appealing about lighthouses. Perhaps it has something to do with their strength, silence, ability to weather fierce storms, and shining a light in the dark for people to find their way. The buildings and the people who manned them were made from strong stuff.
Maybe, just maybe later this year you’ll see a picture of me waving from in front of that red and white striped tower. Dream it, do it. Right?
