The first lighthouse pictured is at the end of a mile-long breakwater. We were lucky enough to go there with our friends and owners of the Towne Motel. I couldn't think of a better way to spend an afternoon. The sky was clear, the sun was bright and the smell of the sea filled the air as we walked, talked and took in the scenic views.
The second lighthouse we visited is the Marshall Point lighthouse, famous for it's appearance in the movie Forrest Gump. (We didn't know that at the time, and even if we did, I don't think the knowledge would have changed our perception). We loved Marshall Point! It was peaceful, quiet, sophisticated and charming!
Owl's Head lighthouse was the last lighthouse we visited by land. Fog was thick the morning we went, but that didn't matter. We loved getting a sense for how and why these coastal icons are so important. After exploring the lighthouse, we went down by the water and spent hours walking up and down the shore. Cliff was brave and stuck his toes in the water. To my chagrin at the time, made me do it, too. The water was freezing, but I'm so glad Cliff stuck to his guns. That one silly memory is going to stay with me for years to come :)
Finally, we took a ride with Camden Harbor Cruises where we hung out with a lobster and sailed past the Curtis and Indian Island Lighthouses. During the first half of the ride, the fog was so thick we could barely see the shoreline, but it made for some really unique photos!
