While passing through York, I couldn't resist making a detour to see the lighthouse lit up for the holidays -- a sight I never get tired of. This year it'll be lit during the entire month of January, probably to give people some needed cheer during the pandemic.

We love visiting the lighthouse at sunset. Gorgeous, romantic setting. Follow up with a walk-in Long Sands and the evening is made.

As a frequent visitor to light and lighthouses, this was a highlight of a trip to Maine this year. Though we were there during a very foggy and cloudy day, the nubble stood as a beacon of warning in the mist. Love that this is tucked away in what still feels like a fishing village, though the houses are now much fancier. It reminds me a bit of Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia. There is a lot of history around the grounds and while the feature is the light and the rocky coast, there is a great gift shop, several fine memorials, and plenty of grounds to walk. On this stormy day, you could imagine how the light was a protector of great coastal ships. Great way to spend part of our first full day in Maine.

Durning these trying times we all could use a little magic so go to Nubble Lighthouse & take in the wonder. This memorable experience begins before sunset. The western sky is ablaze as the sun falls below the horizon. The lights on the lighthouse come on about that time so stay to watch the progression as darkness falls. It is a most wonderful sight. If nothing else, it reminds us of the simple pleasures winter brings. Don’t miss it.

I love this location and lighthouse - and have only seen in the off season! This time we had unseasonable warm weather so we were able to spend time climbing on the rocks and getting some fantastic pictures while enjoying the salt air, the view and the wildlife.
