Yes, it's Brandt Point at the entrance to Nantucket Harbor, which is about 100 nm (by water) from its twin at Mystic Seaport. It amazes me that the Brandt Point light survives in such an apparently vulnerable location.

BTW, you'll need more than this little light to make it into the harbor. Check the jetty that is visible on Google Earth, but is underwater at high tide. The entrance buoys will keep you out of trouble as long as you mind the chart and don't take any shortcuts.

Your turn, Zanshin.
