KCT Thought of the Week, August 7, 2015

“Beside the narrow entrance to the larger harbor stands the little lighthouse, chalk-white against the ocean, or golden, when flaming sunsets touch sea and sky and magic colors holding one speechless with a vision of beauty. And then the moonlight shimmers through the narrow strait, its path unbroken from the shore at one’s feet till it fades into the infinity of night and sea—on some nights silvery and cool, with the wooded islands etched in black; and sometimes golden, as though some giant hand were sprinkling star dust over all.” ~ Melville Freeman in the “History of Cape Porpoise, Maine”
