Did you ever know that lighthouses have nicknames? The nickname for Cape Neddick is Nubble. The Nubble is made out of cast iron lined with brick and is 41 feet tall. A big blizzard washed out the Nubble’s bath house.When you are in a boat on a foggy day you would hear one blast every ten seconds. There were 30 keepers who lived at Cape Neddick. At the Nubble there was an explosion that destroyed the original lens. Cape Neddick is located in York, Maine. The Nubble is all white, but the top is black. Cape Neddick does not look like it is connected to a house but it is. The Neddick is in a little cone. I had fun learning about the Nubble and now I want to go visit.
