The really great shots of the lighthouse were taken at sunset with waves crashing in the scene. (I bought the post card) One of the few remaining historical lighthouses before electronics took over the job.
A classic Maine light station just off of Cape Porpoise (you could walk to it at very low tide). It is maintained, I believe, by the Kennebunkport Conservancy. We had the privilege of touring the facility on a foggy August evening. If you ever get a chance to do so, just do it. A highlight of our summer in Maine.
Take a ride over to pier 77 in Cape Porpoise.It offers a beautiful view of the bay and the Goat Island Lighthouse.It is a working pier where you can see the lobsters brought in daily as well as the crabs.the views are what you would come to Maine for
