The Nubble

Happy Birthday, Mel! On your recommendation -- and after seeing all the gorgeous photos of the Cape Neddick Light here at BP, we just had to visit the "most photographed lighthouse in the United States" when we were in Maine this October. I will confess to having removed a telephone pole and wires. Hope you like it and hope you have a wonderful birthday.
