Today, November 1, 2014 is Theme Day across the CityDailyPhoto blog (cdp) worldwide community. This month's theme is Landmark. In our city there are quite a few subjects that would fall into this category. For me though, The Portland Headlight is number 1 on that list. The light station sits at the head of the channel entering Portland Harbor. Under the direction of President George Washington, construction of the lighthouse was started in 1787. It was completed four years later. Situated in Fort Williams Park, it was one of the destinations that our family traveled to on a Saturday night after a quick trip to Stratford Farms for ice cream. Dad would pull over on the way and regale us with stories about pirates and buried treasure in one of the nearby coves. Were the stories true? How the heck do I know. They were entertaining stories. And I believed them all.
