I have set up this site as a means to share my photographs of lighthouses. Since retiring and finding more time to study photography, my interests have expanded a little. For some of my work other than lighthouses please enjoy my Facebook page at, John Shaw Photography. Come visit, enjoy, and 'LIKE' if you wish.

Also, for your enjoyment, I have provided a slideshow of our journey. To view it please use the link on the right under 'Site Navigation Tools'.

I sincerely hope you enjoy my efforts and use my site not only for information and education but also to provide directions for many enjoyable, inspirational visits to the beacons along our beautiful coas.

The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens # 2

     For the past three or four years my wife and I have taken an annual ride to Boothbay and the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens.  Each time we visit, depending on the season, we have a totally different experience.  The people there have done a fantastic job creating ever changing gardens that will please even the fussiest visitor.  The beauty there during virtually any season is completely overwhelming.  That is why I have chosen to taken the time to dedicate a series of posts demonstrating just that point.  Please keep in mind that I am sharing just a very small sample of what one might see while visiting this very special destination.  Please enjoy my second post!

Lerner Garden of the Five Senses

     In June of 2009 the Lerner Garden of the Five Senses opened. This exquisite garden of about an acre adjacent to the Visitor Center allows all visitors to get in touch with their five major senses. It includes many features that make its delights accessible to the disabled.
