Nubble Light, Cape Neddick Maine

Nubble Light, Cape Neddick Maine

November 8, 2013 after a rainy Thursday, and an overnight room in nearby Wells, I ventured off US 1 past inns, cottages and a country club to find this outstanding maritime landmark! This lighthouse sits on the southern Maine coast, just beyond Kittery and York Beach. A flock of snow buntings in their brown winter plumage greeted me in the parking lot. In summer they breed in the arctic, white with black wings; they had come south in the cold front. Watercolor.
