February 18, 2019 – Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse – Maine

I apologize as I am slightly behind with my blogging over the last couple days, but am slowly catching up!!  On February 18, 2019 Shadow, Wilma, My Mom, and I Adventured to the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse in Portland, Maine.  The Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse is a working lighthouse located along a breakwater in the Casco Bay.  It was built in 1897, while improvements and updates have been made since that time.  It is open to the public for tours.

We had a chilly, yet spectacular Adventure to the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse, one of our many stops on our two day Maine getaway.  (most of which I’ve already blogged about but some new Adventures too).  I was excited to find a lighthouse that I had not yet visited, and that also provided a close-up view. Being off-season we were lucky to have the entire site to ourselves.  We began our Adventure cautiously as the paths were again ice covered, and quite slippery.  There were benches along the water, the view of the Lighthouse off in the distance.  We walked toward the breakwater, however my Mom soon decided to head back to the car to warm-up.

Upon starting on the breakwater  I soon realized that Shadow was not feeling inspired by the rocks, and slight spaces between them.  We headed back to the car and my Mom agreed to sit in the warm car with Shadow while myself and my rock-loving Wilma hustled back to the breakwater eager for our close-up view.  Wilma was thrilled for some rock jumping.  It was a bit frigid, although Wilma appeared to keep warm from her athletic jumps.  Luckily the rocks were not icy, but had some scenic snow here and there, adding a picturesque scene for photographs.  We carefully planned our jumps, some requiring steps, while others leaps as we hustled down the embankment.

It was thrilling to arrive at the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse, a lovely structure.  We did not spend much time at the end, as we knew Shadow and My Mom were waiting for our return.  However, it was definitely worth this short visit.

I love an Adventure that is not simple, but yet requires some work to arrive at the final destination  Definitely a wonderful Adventure – Thanks to Mom for allowing us to partake in this Adventure, while providing Shadow comfort and warmth (Rating:  5).
