“I am lighthouse rather than lifeboat. I do not rescue, but instead help others to find their own way to shore, guiding them by my example.” – Modern Affirmation
Who doesn’t love a lighthouse? Especially if it’s in Maine. Each year thousands of tourists visit Maine’s lighthouses. Sixty-four lighthouses dot Maine’s rugged coast. The Islandport Guide to Lighthouses in Maine is written by Ted Panayotoff who is a lighthouse historian. It’s a comprehensive and useful guidebook with pages of photographs and vintage postcards of the lighthouses. Maine lighthouses have interesting names such as Burnt Island Light, Owls Head Light, and Whaleback Light. Each lighthouse is profiled with descriptions, contact information, and direction. Plus there is a special section on lighthouses that features overnight accommodations.
