Cape Neddick Lighthouse, Nubble Island, Maine

I'd removed this photo to redbubble, but decided that since we actually put this on twenty of the Christmas cards we've made this year I ought to stick it into JPG's holiday theme.

Our boys always loved going to Maine for the holidays and why not, they had four Christmases. We'd open presents from local friends before he hit the road (I'd put out Santa's presents for them to find when we got back). Then we'd celebrate at Mom's on Christmas Eve and Brenda's folks on Christmas day.

    I did some time in Annapolis. We lived on the bay. I love lighthouses. Some fairly historic screwpile lighthouses dot the bay's landscape. Thomas Point Lighthouse is one of my favorites. So is this one.
