Sea, sand bluffs, and an old lighthouse in the summer sunlight of a Cape Cod day…what could be more benign? But Eastham's 48-foot tower wasn't built for tourists and painters to admire. When mighty storms pound the cliffs along the Cape's Atlantic wall, ships could be wrecked there if Nauset Light didn't warn them of the danger. Identified by its alternating red and white lights every ten seconds, and painted in those colors for daytime recognition, the light has saved countless lives in its three quarters of a century of service. 
Originally one of two brick-lined cast iron towers at Chatham, Nauset Light was moved here and erected in 1924. 

Karen North Wells has done many paintings of lighthouses but this one, she says, has the beauty of the Cape Cod National Seashore surrounding it.
