Portland Head Lighthouse

12 Captain Strout Cir,
Cape Elizabeth, ME 04107

It was commissioned by President George Washington in 1790. We visit it on 9/11 in 2019, a gorgeous blue sky day, just like it in 2001. The flag is half-staff. May the good and decent live on forever!

The structure is well maintained. To its right is a massive rock terrain that allow people to hike or walk on. To the left is a more normal trail. Both sides have great views but I far more prefer the rock side.

As we’re about to leave, we see the Norwegian cruiser we’ve seen earlier at port going by.
