Wild Seas Lighthouse Necklace
Safe and Sound, Home is Near

Europe has castles, America has lighthouses. People are drawn to these monuments by the sea. The lights speak to an age when so many livelihoods depended on the ocean and overcoming its tempestuous moods.

Imagine being on a wooden ship two hundred years ago on a moonless night with whipping winds, steady rain, and swells rolling under the hull. It’s pitch black and a rocky coastline is close. No motor. No satellite map to assist. A beam of flashing light, or the rhythmic boom of a foghorn in the distance would be the most welcome assurance. Your guide for a safe return home.

Wild Seas Lighthouse Necklace
Safe and Sound, Home is Near
Swirling sapphire seas leap around the lighthouse tower, while high above, in the lantern room, a single white diamond glows bright. The journey’s been long. The guiding light, reaching out into the night is a welcome sight. Home is near.

This piece is land meeting sea. The gold tower stands strong. A beacon of hope and welcome. Your guide for a safe return home.

Nubble lighthouse, Maine

We Played Tourists

2020, and Two Memorable Lighthouses -S.L.P

Nubble Lighthouse – In early March 2020, just before all our lives changed in ways few predicted, my wife and I went on a weekend overnight down in York, Maine. The Inn bustled with couples, families, even a wedding party. It was a fun one-night getaway exploring a quiet coastal town with dinner out and the absence of a three-year-old to wake us up in the morning.

On the way home we took the slow scenic route. The wind had been steady that weekend. The waves were big. We stopped often to watch the surf on the way to Cape Neddick. At Nubble Point many were there to see Nubble Lighthouse which sits on a small island across a narrow channel of water. We talked about what the life of the lighthouse keeper must have been like over 100 years ago – the challenges, and deep sense of responsibility the light keepers must have felt to guide mariners safely home.

Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, Maine

Bass Harbor Head – June 2020, we headed north this time on a camping trip to Bass Harbor on Mt. Desert Island. The island was covid-quiet. Almost all the cars were from Maine, a rarity around Acadia National Park in summer. Our campground was within a mile of Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse.

One evening, while my wife and son prepped for bedtime, I went down to the lighthouse around sunset. I climbed out onto the rocks. The air was still, the ocean smooth. I watched as boats headed home in the fading golden light. The lighthouse was nearly hidden from where I sat, surrounded by spruce trees, perched above salmon-colored cliffs. A silent sentry. After twenty minutes it was time to get back to camp, back to my family.

Three Great Ways to See Our Maine Lighthouses:
1) See our map below for a private self-guided tour. Really pretty locations.

All of Maine’s Lighthouses

 

For fun we plotted each Maine Lighthouse on a map and were surprised by some of the lighthouse locations.

2) Maine’s Lighthouse Day: Two dozen Maine lighthouses open to tours. Walk up the spiral stairs. Really grand views.

 

3) Take a Maine Lighthouse Boat Tour to see the lighthouses from the water.

Our extended ninety days, for a small business, is almost unheard of. Truth is, we shop for gifts too, and rather than scrambling at the last minute and feeling the tension of time, we like this more relaxed approach. We wish everyone did something like this… it would be a kinder, gentler world.
