Portland Breakwater Lighthouse is more commonly known as Bug Light due to its diminutive size. Plus, bug light just sounds so much cooler. It is also the place to go if you want to fly a kite as the wind is wicked by the water. I’ve blogged about it before in my post Kite Festival at Bug Light Park, South Portland.
I also returned to the park again when trying to launch a homemade Castiel kite during our Gishwhes Scavenger Hunt this past August. You probably need to be a fan of the TV show Supernatural to understand that previous sentence. Sadly, it’s not even my first reference to Supernatural during this blogging challenge. I’m a bit obsessed. But, you don’t need to be a fan of the show to get the gist.
Bug Light Park is the best place to go fly a kite.
When stopping by in the winter to photograph the lighthouse, the wind was even more intense. Snow never stays long so close to the ocean but I love that someone put so much energy into building a gigantic, although somewhat primitive, snowman before the snow melted away. While he had faded a bit, the snowman still had a strong presence as he kept watch over the harbor next to Bug Light.
Lighthouses are always fun to visit, but they take on a lonelier, more isolated feel during the winter months.
Do you like to visit lighthouses or fly kites?
I’m participating in a Blogging A-Z Challenge for April 2018. I will be posting new content every day this month except most Sundays. Each post is associated with a letter of the alphabet, starting with A and ending with Z. My theme for the challenge is Winters in Maine. To read more of my A to Z posts, click HERE.
