    Sohier Park Welcome Center Gift Shop: the only Shop in Cape Nubble Nedick

    by machomikemd Updated Jun 25, 2011

    The Sohier Park Welcome Center at Cape Neddick Light Station, better known as Nubble Light, was built in 1991. The building includes separate rest rooms for men and women on either side of a 12-by-12-foot gift shop. Although the shop is small, inside is packed with tons of souvenir items for hordes of tourists during summer and early fall and I might consider these as part of the tourist traps hehehehe.

    What to buy: assorted souvenirs like my favorite refrigerator magnets that costs $ 4.99 to $ 7.99, assorted shot glasses lfrom $ 2.99 to $ 6.99, nubble light port cards, keychains, sweat shirts, wind breakers and more.

    What to pay: depends on what you buy but they are generally cheap

Cape Neddick Nubble Warnings and Dangers

    Subliminal Advertising

    by KarenandCory Updated Jun 8, 2006

    Shameless product placement has long been an evil of television and movies. I'm sad to report that the State of Maine is hopping on the Subliminal Advertisement bus. I often wondered why so many tourists gawk at Nubble Light as if it were Jesus descending from the clouds. Then I watched this video in slow motion and when I paused it just right, THERE IT WAS! For about a split second you can see the image of a coke can! Despicable! Can we sink no lower!?!
    Nothing screams New World Order like a flaming red coke can on a lighthouse!

    Red = Power, Power = Government, Government = the elite, the elite = illuminati, illuminati = in league with Satan.

    History of The Nubble Video- is that a coke can!?!

    Wind & Rain

    by KarenandCory Written May 15, 2006

    Favorite thing: You can't tell from these pictures, but the waves were the wildest I've ever seen them during this rain storm. What is clear from these pictures is how windy it was. The force of the wind and the frigid, stinging rain drops prevented us from staying here any longer than it took to take these photographs. Ahhh, New England weather.

    May 2006 I thought Cory said it was gonna be beach weather!
