For all the posts in the Beacons of Fire Series, go here.
Prologue: I love Nora Roberts books, well her books mostly those that she wrote prior to 2009. One of her book is the 1985 romantic novel, One Man’s Art, fourth in her longest series, The McGregor Series. The hero of the story, Grant Campbell, is a loner, rude, surly and impossible, who lives in an old lighthouse. Genevieve Grandeau literally lands on his doorstep during one particular stormy night. The story that follows between Grant and Gennie is what inspired me to look at lighthouses in a different light.
Inspired by this book by Nora Roberts, here I present you my Beacons of Fire Series. Next is the Egg Rock Lighthouse in Bar Harbor, Maine
While visiting Acadia National Park two years ago, we had taken a Lobster Boat Ride that got us closer to Egg Rock Lighthouse in Bar Harbor. Originally built in 1875, it is a rare example of a square brick tower rising from the center of the keeper’s dwelling and looks like constructed using children’s building blocks. It is host to several nesting birds now.
