Photo of the Day: Doubling Point Lighthouse, Maine

This is one of the prettiest lighthouse locations around. It's in Arrowsic, on the Kennebec River, across from the waterfront of Bath.

This particular photo was taken in June 2001, when I visited here with the French photographer Jean Guichard. While we were there, we saw a deer close by at the edge of the woods, and we also saw an otter in the water. Jean remarked, "It is like a Disney film here!"

Haunted Lighthouse video clip - Seguin Island, Maine

My friend Ron Kolek just sent me a link to the video below. This is a segment from a show on the SciFi Channel several years ago. It's about the supposedly haunted Seguin Lighthouse, at the mouth of the Kennebec River in Maine.

The segment is kind of lame, but it's really nice to see clips of an interview with Connie Small. Connie was the author of the wonderful book The Lighthouse Keeper's Wife, and her positive attitude and love of lighthouses made her an inspiration. Connie was 99 when this was shot, and she lived to be 103.
