I have a thing for lighthouses. If I could jump into a Thomas Kinkade painting and live there, I would. Lighthouses are a common theme in Kinkade’s artwork. There’s something magical about them. Kinkade believed “lighthouses are primary symbols of the power of faith to guide us through the storms in our lives,” according to his website. I see lighthouses as tiny castles, scattered up and down the coast and I would love to visit them all. One day I will.

Let’s start with five that are within driving distance:

Portland Head Light in Maine

You have to go a couple miles out to sea to view this #lighthouse. Worth it. #maine #newengland
