The “lighthouse” at the end of the harbor breakwater on Bearskin Neck in Rockport has precariously tumbled away from its perch. Even though I live right down the street and go by this often by boat, I’m not sure exactly when this happened. Anyone?

This was a year ago now… Time flies! A canvas giclée print of this shot will be for sale in the GMG section of EJ Lefavour’s gallery on Rocky Neck very soon. It was printed at Cape Ann Giclée, so the quality of the print is excellent.
Many a mariner from Gloucester has sailed or steamed close by this lighthouse. It was built in 1802 and is operational today — Fl (2) R 12s (W sector) (3). A few days distant by sail.
Who can name it?
John and I ended up taking photos from very near the same spot to get the moonrise behind Thatcher Island, but then he moved on to other locations. Here are a few of his (amazing) photos.
Catch more of his photos on Flickr!
Small fishing boat near a lighthouse
Should the lighthouse be taller? I tried to get the proportions from photos of Eastern Point lighthouse, more or less. It is probably not quite in the right proportion to the size of the fishing boat, but folding from dollar bills limits the range of size I can produce…
No dollar bills were damaged during this production… All three could be unfolded and put back in my wallet.
This morning the ocean was like glass and by 5:00 pm, it turned very rough. Why we love living here, the ocean changes all the time.
If there’s one thing I learned from my great grandmother, it’s the importance of being a hostess—welcoming people into your home and making them feel warm, loved and taken care of. But if you asked me for two things my Nana taught me in the 23 years I had with her, the second would be to never let a lighthouse go unappreciated.
She loved lighthouses and had them everywhere – sweatshirts with lighthouses on them, calendars, magnets on the fridge. She loved to go driving around just to visit lighthouses in New England. Lighthouses like the one I get to walk by every day on my way to work. As I get ready to go say my good-byes at Nana Lyman’s memorial on Monday, I decided to take a little tour of Gloucester’s lighthouses and appreciate the beauty around us every day – just wanted to share a little bit of it.
Thanks To Dani For Giving Us The Tour

Who can identify which lighthouse this is?
