Maine Lights

Back in August, Tim and I went to Maine for a long weekend. This month we vacationed in Maine with my brother and his wife, Chris and Carol Lutz. We'd planned this trip for a year, and it lived up to our expectations.

We arrived in Portland and after lunch went to see the Portland Lighthouse.

It was majestic and beautiful, and we couldn't have picked a better day to see it.

The next day we walked out to the Rockland Lighthouse. It's an amazing experience. You walk out on huge rocks that are somehow held together to make a path through the water to the lighthouse.

Here's Tim with Chris and Carol.

That's how our vacation started. Maine's coast is beautiful and rugged, and we saw the leaves starting to turn red and yellow. I'll share more about our trip later.

Psalm 8: 1-4
Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
in the heavens.
2 Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.
3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?


  1. In all the times I've been to the Portland Head Light, it has never been sunny. One time we were there in a fog so dense you really could understand why lighthouses matter. But I'm still waiting to have a lobster roll in the sun at the Two Lights restaurant up there.

    Can't wait to hear more about your trip.

    1. Hi Cate, thanks so much for stopping by. It was an a fabulous trip. I'll definitely share more.

  2. Wow! Beautiful photographs, Jackie! Thanks for sharing.
