The Maine Event

By Linda Tancs

As hurricane Hanna threatens to rumble up the Atlantic Coast, I can’t help but think about how many sailors found safe harbor in the midst of America’s lighthouses along the coast.  Although they may have been replaced technologically by radar and other systems, these unwavering oceanic icons represent the adventuresome spirit of those whose lives depended on that guiding light.  Did you know that Maine has over 60 lighthouses dotting the coast?  West Quoddy Head is the easternmost lighthouse in the United States.  You can visit a good many of them just by cruising down Route 1.  Now there’s a group of northern lights you won’t want to miss.
