Race Point Light Art Print 8" x 10" Travel Poster - Massachusetts
Race Point Light in Provincetown, Massachusetts was named for the challenging cross currents that are so prevalent at the edge of Cape Cod. A two-mile walk on the soft sand from the parking lot to the lighthouse gave me a true taste of the Cape. As I strolled along the beach, a curious seal accompanied me bobbing up and down in the water just past the crashing waves. It was ninety degrees, and my walk soon turned into an arduous hike. I was tempted to cut through the preserve of native beach grass to save the unintended exercise, but then noticed something intriguing at my feet. When the wind blows the culms of beach grass in a circular motion, it creates a unique ring pattern in the sand. It was nature’s way of saying, “take the long way and go around.” Finally, I arrived at the beautifully restored Race Point Light. After a couple pints of cold water from the generous keepers, I proceeded to sketch and photograph this truly stunning place. The volunteer keepers felt a little sorry for this road worn artist and gave me a ride back to my car.

Certificate of Authenticity
We went to Race Point Lighthouse and it was beautiful. The artwork complements others on our wall of places we traveled and want to have keepsakes of.
Although the print was great, I was surprised to see that it was not actually 8 x 10 but more like a 5 x 7 with a light colored edge to bring it up to an 8 x 10 size.
I was very pleased with the arrival of my Race Point Light art print. It brings back wonderful memories of trips out to the lighthouse while living on the Cape. The artwork is beautiful!
