Throwback Adventure – Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse – Maine

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

Shadow, Buster, My Mom, and I visited the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse in August of 2015.  The Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse is a Lighthouse located in the Acadia National Park in Tremont, Maine.  It was built in 1858, is 56 feet in height, and is made of brick.  It is currently an active lighthouse.

We had a misty Adventure to the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, on a hair-curling kind of day.  It was humid and foggy, the apparent theme of this Maine adventure.  Upon arrival we started on the left side path that appeared to go into the tree canopy.  We followed the disney-like stairway into the beautiful cliffside below.  The rocks and views of the Blue Hill Bay were spectacular, even revealing a view of the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse from afar.  After enjoying some posing and great spots along the rocks we headed back up the stairs to the Lighthouse trail.

We arrived to the Lighthouse with a crowd of others, causing us to spend some time waiting for some tourist free photography.  The shoreline was rocky, perfectly brown in color.  I do not recall all the little details of the spot, but definitely a special visit with the perfect company.  I think it is likely that we will should visit again in the future.  Maybe the sun will make an appearance next time!
