[Halfway Rock Lighthouse, Casco Bay, Maine; August, 2012]
Dedicated to my lovely friend, Shirley Valencia, on her very special day.
Shirley co-hosted a wonderful JPG meet-up in St. Louis, last April. Iâ€™ll never forget it. Thanks for the memories, Shirls.
Shirley and I share a common interest in Rock â€˜nâ€™ Rollâ€™s formative years, so I have linked a golden oldie that we both remember filling the airwaves way back when. (Wasnâ€™t â€œAMâ€ radio great?)
So, little â€œbirthday buddy,â€ hereâ€™s wishing you the very best in life . . . now and always!
Halfway Rock Lighthouse (1871) is one of seven lighthouses in Casco Bay. It is halfway between Cape Elizabeth and Cape Small, Maine, and thus its name.
Halfway Rock Lighthouse was built in 1871 to warn ships of the rocky ledge that appears in what is otherwise deep water. At the time of its construction, the rocky ledge had already exacted a fearful toll.
A boathouse was added later. The rocky ledge has become a favorite of seals.
GPS has largely replaced lighthouses as the navigation tool of choice. But, nothing can ever replace the iconic status of Americaâ€™s lighthouses. Or Shirley!
As always, thanks for stopping by this page.
