Today Wilma and I Adventured to Mid-Coast Maine for four Adventures. Although I do not know if Mid-Coast Maine is technically defined, that is how I will categorize our Adventures today. We visited: Wolfe Neck State Park, Robinson Cove, Doubling Point Lighthouse, and Fort Williams Park, the home to Portland Head Lighthouse. We loved exploring the shoreline, hiking, the spectacular geography of the rocks, and the perfect Fall weather. Since I have blogged about the two Parks somewhat recently, I thought I would share some of my many favorite photographs in one collage. I did a separate blog of Doubling Point Lighthouse, however will still include some of my favorites here. Wolfe Neck State Park and Fort Williams are definitely on my top Maine State Parks…so far! Hope you will enjoy these photographs of a wonderful day.
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).
