Swept Away depicts Pemaquid
Point on the Coast of Maine. People go there to visit the lighthouse and
to take in the beauty of the sea as it crashes against the rocks below.
During a walk there, my wife Carol and I were talking to a man who was
employed at the lighthouse. He warned us about standing on the rocks too
close to the sea because sometime earlier in the year a man standing on
the rocks had been swept away by an oncoming wave and lost at sea.
