This beautiful Dorey was used on the set of “The Light keepers”, as back in the day when lighthouses were still operated by men, the Dorey was a common form of transportation. The final day of filming of this very intriguing movie will be on Tuesday, somewhere in Hyannisport, where, undoubtedly, the lore of the Kennedy compound will make it’s presence known. Some 30 miles to the southeast, sits a little lighthouse called Brandt Point. Small, white and back in the day when lighthouses were essential for vessels to navigate the treacherous shoreline of New England, Brandt Point was named after the Brandt Geese that frequent these waters during winter months. Although the lighthouse had been blown down by forces of nature such as hurricanes during it’s 200 plus year existence, hence it’s nickname–the lighthouse with nine lives–it shines as bright as ever at the entrance to Nantucket Harbor. Mariners would always breathe a sigh of relief when catching a glimpse of it’s small, yet powerful light. Peace M
