Portland Headlight "In Action," July 2009 and July 2011

Your blogger took these pictures of the Portland Head Light, in Casco Bay, from the Casco Bay Lines ferry in July, 2009. Wikipedia has a nice entry on the history and significance of the lighthouse (see here), constructed in the late 18th Century at the behest of George Washington.  Moreover, the lighthouse itself maintains a webcam, to be found here.  Click on the webcam photo to enlarge it.

Here is another photo of the same lighthouse, taken in July, 2011.
