Cape Cod , Maine USA

This was taken at Cape Cod, home of beaches, cottages, and lighthouses. This is the Highlands Lighthouse at North Truro. That is located on the eastern end of the Cape. For those who are into geography, that is 42° 02' 21" N
70° 03' 44" W.

The station was established in 1797, making it one of the oldest (and the first to use flashing lights). The present structure was built in 1857. And it still lights up.

Grounds are open all year. Take a drive up there. I'm sure you'll fall in love with old Cape Cod!
