Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Marshall Point Lighthouse in Port Clyde, Maine. The Marshall Point Lighthouse is located on the St. George Peninsula in Midcoast Maine. It was built in 1858. The property includes the Lighthouse, a museum and gift shop, and the Keeper’s home.
We had a relaxing Adventure to the Marshal Point Lighthouse. I was surprised, yet pleased to find parking at the Lighthouse as I had read that we would find a small lot. We immediately wandered over to the Lighthouse, it was beautiful. Due to the other visitors and a photographer set up at the walkway we began by exploring the rocks and under the Lighthouse. The rocks were uniquely grooved and textured adding lovely character to the scene. We took our time, and I was careful not to slip on the wet rocks. We then explored the opposite side before having our turn to wander down the walkway. The sun impacted the photographs, but definitely not the experience. Marshall Point Lighthouse reminded me of our recent visit to Doubling Point Lighthouse, although Marshall Point Lighthouse provided more opportunity to explore. Such a peaceful location. So glad we could Adventure to the Marshal Point Lighthouse today (Rating: 4).
Today Wilma and I Adventured to Doubling Point Lighthouse in Arrowsic, Maine. Doubling Point Lighthouse is located on the Kennebec River at the end of a small pier. The Lighthouse was built in 1898. It is located on private property but it is open for visitors.
We had a fun Adventure to the Doubling Point Lighthouse. We had attempted to visit this Lighthouse on one occasion but it was closed. Therefore I was especially excited to visit today. Upon arrival we found a group of visitors at the Lighthouse, so began our Adventure exploring on the side. We located a little path through the tall colored grass and down to the River’s edge. I loved this secretive little spot with varying colors of grass, and a large coastal tree branch. It was simple yet uniquely beautiful. Once the visitors on the boardwalk departed we headed over to see the Lighthouse.
It took me a minute to figure out how to open the gate at the beginning of the boardwalk and before I could open it Wilma jumped through the triangular hole causing a nice laugh as I figured how to untangle her and go through myself. Never a dull moment with this enthusiastic girl. We then headed down the pier, my favorite aspect of this Lighthouse. We walked down and around the Lighthouse, back and forth, enjoying the scenery around us and this peaceful location. Thankfully we had some time to appreciate this Lighthouse before the next visitors arrived. Before departing we checked out the Lighthouse from the opposite side. Being that the Lighthouse was on private property it was not a place we felt appropriate to sit and relax. However, we were quite thankful that these kind property owners allowed visitors. So glad we could Adventure to Doubling Point Lighthouse today (Rating: 4).
