The Cape Cod (Highland) Light in North Truro, Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Built in 1857. The tower is 66 feet tall and it's lantern is 183 feet above sea level. The light sits on a high cliff above the sea. It is located in north Truro on Cape Cod's Atlantic coast. The first light tower on this site was built in 1797 and was 45 feet tall. It was rebuilt in 1853 on the same site. It was replaced by the present tower in 1857. In 1996 the tower and buildings were moved 450 feet further inland to protect them from destruction by erosion (the cliff's edge was within 100 feet of the keeper's dwelling). There is a nice walking path behind (in this picture) the light out a short distance to the old location and then past that a deck with a beautiful view of the ocean and huge beaches below. This visit we were treated with a pair of seals swimming up the coast in the tide fishing, watching them surface and then come back up. Couldn't get a photo of them with the cheap FujiFilm 2mp camera that took these. If I had, you would have just seen some black specks in the ocean most likely. The Fuji took decent snapshots, but my Canon A95 does much better, and I'm getting bored with it. Time for a better lens.

Cape Cod: Illustrated Edition of the American Classic
Originally published in 1865, Henry David Thoreau’s Cape Cod is a wonderfully written, surprisingly funny account of nineteenth-century life on the Cape well before it became a major tourist attraction. To this day, many people consider it the best book ever written about Cape Cod. This new illustrated volume features the complete text of Thoreau’s classic work as published in Houghton Mifflin’s 1906 edition, the stunning photography of Scot Miller, and a foreword from the preeminent Thoreau biographer, Robert Richardson. Many of the lush color photographs show elements of the landscape that Thoreau would have seen: the great beach, imposing cliffs, sand dunes, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, beach grass, seaweed; others reflect the unique personality of Cape Cod and its people today, including local artists and architecture. The combination of Thoreau’s timeless text and Miller’s exquisitely reproduced color photographs make this an indispensable book for anyone who loves Thoreau’s writing or Cape Cod.

The book is being published in association with the Walden Woods Project, which is dedicated to preserving the lands Thoreau wrote about. For each copy sold, Houghton Mifflin and Scot Miller are making a donation to the Walden Woods Project.
