This is another lighthouse near where I live. I've been here quite a few times, and have enjoyed every trip to take pictures of the lighthouse.

“Goat Island Lighthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Goat Island Lighthouse is a beautiful lighthouse off the coast of Cape Porpoise (part of Kennebunkport). Dropping a canoe or kayak in the water at the pier is easiest way to get there. Well worth the paddle.
