Portland Head Light - Maine

For David's birthday and the end of summer, we took a mini-vacation to Cape Ann, MA and the south coast of Maine. Here are some of the pics from Portland Head Light.

Here are the two of us, just to prove that we really were there...

And a full view of the Lighthouse.

Or you can choose the Artist's rendition...

One of the cool sights was a sailing ship headed for the Deep Blue beyond, sailing out of the harbor and past one of the smaller lights... (Let us know which picture you like best)

Heading out of the channel...

Approaching the small light.

And passing it by.

Or you can opt for a luxury yacht coming into the Harbor.

A view of the waves. We sat on a bench above the rocks and enjoyed the sun and the sound of the waves for a long, long time.

A parting view of Portland Head.

Locke Family History

A number of years ago I had a business meeting outside Atlanta, and decided to make an afternoon visit to Jasper, Tennessee just outside of Chattanooga. This is where my Grandmother Brower (maiden name Locke) was born and joined the church.

I've been thinking for some time about getting more serious about tracing the Locke family roots and finding out more about the Locke, McClellan, Parker, and Cate families.

To that end I've started a new blog which you've invited to read and contribute to. You'll find it at KateLockeAncestry. Come take a look!
