So, today we tried to get in three lighthouses, but only made it to two! The second required a mile walk out and another mile back, so we are too tired to make it to the third for today. We had fun though and found some great beach treasures!!
Peter at Marshall Point Lighthouse.
Anna on the rocks looking for sea glass and other treasures!
Now they all found tide pools and are looking for fun finds!
Looking in the rocks for sea glass!
Here we all are with Marshall Point behind us.
The two oldest boys.
Behind is the lighthouse keepers house, not used any more. Beautiful coast line!
Here are the kids about to walk the breakwater in Rockland. The walk is 1 mile on these huge granite boulders.
This is the mid-point of the walk – with 1 solid piece across.
Finally at the end – the light house itself.
Along the coast are the Camden Hills – Mt Battie is in there somewhere. Again, just pretty.
Only 2 Lighthouses, but still a good day! Had to head back to the point for happy hour snacks, sitting by the fire, and another wonderful meal!
So after our morning at Owl’s Head we decided to run off to two other Light Houses.
First up was Marshall Point Light House – we love this one too, but do not make it here every year.
This is the light house Forest Gump ran to on the east coast.
J even got his hands on the camera for a few minutes and got a few pics of Robert and me.
As you can see the fog from our morning visit to Owl’s Head disappeared!! It was a beautiful trip to Marshall Point!!
What a thrill to see Eagles. In. Real. Life.
I have never seen an eagle except for the zoo, but I have heard plenty about them from Betsy (Robert’s mom) and I was dying to see one! I was so hoping that this would be the year!!
And it was!
I saw them the other night, but tonight I asked Robert to take me out on the boat (with my camera) to see if we can catch some pics! So here is what I got….
One of my favorites was this one..
So yes, check this off my list of things to do in Maine! Lovely!!
And here are a few pics of the Osprey we have been watching too.
We love the nature part of life up here in Maine! So amazing to see God’s hand in so many ways!!
