The Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse is located on a breakwater by the main channel into the Portland Harbor. I decided to climb down the rocks by the lighthouse to take advantage of a small sand dune in the water for a different view of the lighthouse (which I didn’t post). Well, I quickly learned that, while getting down the rocks safely was difficult enough, getting back up them with all my gear was near impossible. Naturally, as the tide continued to rise and my sand dune shrunk to only a couple feet of exposed sand, I reacted with my typical sense of urgency, taking advantage of the impending crisis to take an incoming call and brag to friends and take pictures of my last few moments of life.
