Beautiful Lighthouse

I was out today on a sole sight seeing drive and I took another picture of Nubble Lighthouse! I just love going there. Beautiful day and not too crowded!

I've been many times, seen it from different angles. There's a nice parking lot with smooth rocks to walk out on towards the ocean. Always a lovely view.

Great views of the cutest little lighthouse, amazing ocean views, and tons of sea life to see in the little tidal pools that form on the rocks.

Wife & I and friends visited this picturesque lighthouse on our trim to the East Coast last Fall. This is a must-see. The lighthouse and tender's home are separated from the mainland angry rocky straits. Beautiful ocean views and a nice gift store.

This is an inspiring spot with winds and waves and ocean beauty. Whether sitting and enjoying the sound of the crashing waves or doing bird-watching, this is a relaxing and enjoyable stop. When we recently visited, it reminded us of so many earlier visits with friends and family. A great place to make memories...

We're so lucky to live nearby and so we get to visit The Nubble every year. For some reason, it never disappoints. Each time we visit, the weather is different, and there is something new about it.

Not much to say. Worth the visit. Beautiful and iconic lighthouse in southern Maine. The only suggestion I have is to be careful visiting in tourist season. The narrow roads to get there can become seriously congested.

Nubble Light is pretty as a picture and one of the most photographed Maine icons. Good signage off Rte. 1A. Big parking lot, benches, seasonal visitors center. Particularly pretty at dusk

Thank emholly
