To the lighthouse.

Thanks to its famously ragged and craggy coastline, Maine is home to a whole bunch of lighthouses. From the dock outside our house, we could see three lighthouses - one visible to the naked eye during the day, and the other two apparent only via their nighttime beacons.

The closest light to the house was Owl's Head Light, which Nick, Louisa and I visited on our last day in St. George. The lighthouse itself was lovely, but the view down from its base was even better. Picture-perfect Maine, right down to the wildflowers and steep drops.

(Word on the street, by the way, is that the burgers at the Owl's Head General Store, a few minutes' drive from the lighthouse, are the best in the state. I hope to judge for myself soon.)
