Cape Elizabeth Light (Two Lights)

Cape Elizabeth Light (Two Lights)


Cape Elizabeth, Maine (ME), US
The Two Lights of Cape Elizabeth stand up at the end of a long and narrow granite ridge raised fifty or sixty feet above the low ground around it. ...The outlook opened to us here, whether of sea or shore, of windy cape or tumbling surf, is uncommonly fine, if only one could get rid of the train of ideas that these roaring reefs on one hand, and the life-saving station on the other ...so infallibly suggest. Even in the season of calm seas and serene skies these gray little cabins by the sea constantly remind us of lurking dangers...

-- Samuel Adams Drake, The Pine Tree Coast, 1891.
