Good evening everyone.
I plan on visiting Rockland in a couple of weeks and I read a brief writeup
about Ladies Delight Lighthouse near Augusta and was wondering if I might be able to catch a glimpse of it while I'm up there.

Does any one have information about this light...history, directions, etc.

You all have helped me out with so many good suggestions and directions
in the past...I'm sure someone will know something about this light.

Thanks,
Yvonne

I also wrote an article on it here:

I have to admit I haven't personally seen it. But here's some info that might help: Hugh M. Stephens, Commodore of the Cobbosseecontee Yacht Club, runs Cobbossee Cruises and can take you within 20 feet of the lighthouse. Cruises are by appointment; call (207) 622-9409 or email sos464@banet.net for information.

Your visit may be too early for a boat visit, but maybe Hugh can give you a tip for viewing the lighthouse. I understand it can be seen from the shore, but is better seen by boat.

Jeremy,
Thank you. I hesitated to ask you since I'm always bothering you for
information. I'll give Hugh a call and see if he has any ideas. I
don't know if I'd have enough time for a boat trip, short tho it might be,
but Augusta isn't that far away...I could plan something for the summer.

Thanks again as usual for all your helpful information.

Yvonne
