April 29, 2019 – Owls Head State Park and Owls Head Light – Maine

Although my goal is to post our Adventures  the same day, or following day, I failed to reach that goal for this blog.  However, I still am excited to share this Adventure.

On Monday Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to the Owls Head State Park, which hosts the Owls Head Lighthouse in Owls Head, Maine.  The Lighthouse was built in 1825 is located high above the Penobscot Bay.   There are two beaches in the Park, one with views of the Bay, and the other with views of Rockland.

We had a scenic Adventure to Owls Head State Park and the Owls Head Lighthouse on a beautiful sunny day.  This was our last official Adventure of our weekend in Maine.  Upon arrival we wandered over to the picnic area to find lovely views framed by a narrow beach.  We decided to wander down the path to the right to the Owls Head Lighthouse.  It was a tranquil spot, with several look-outs along the way.  It did not take long to arrive at the Lighthouse.  We were delighted to have the area all to ourselves slowly weaving up the ramp, and stairs to arrive directly underneath the Lighthouse.  Owls Lighthouse is a unique lighthouse area providing sweeping views.  After spending some time enjoy the picturesque location we headed back to the picnic area.

From there we ventured down the trail to the left, not quite sure what to expect.  Another short trail which ended at a small beach.  The beach was quite rocky, but provided some sand areas in between the numerous rocks.  There were small cliff-like rocks adorned with evergreens.  After exploring for a bit we sat and enjoyed the ocean breeze, Shadow rolling, and napping, while Wilma took part in some digging fun.  A wonderful place to relax on a gorgeous day.

Our last stop at the Park was the Beach area, immediately adjacent to the parking lot.  Yet another rocky beach making for some unpredictable footing.  However that did not stop us from strolling around briefly to survey the area, and snap some photographs.  Such a lovely Park, and Lighthouse in Owls Head.  We are so glad we could explore this special area on our Adventure (Rating:  4).
