It was also kind of a cheat stop as far out to sea, almost a speck was another of the lighthouses. Ram Island Light which sits at the Entrance to Portland Harbour!
Our second stop was a trip to the Two Lights State Park, where we had a scramble on the rocks and had a momentary hope that one of the Lobster Huts down on the beach was open. It wasn’t, but we had that minute of hope. There were two lighthouses here, but they sit on private property, so they aren’t that easy to get at. But clambering over the rocks was fun.
Our next location was possibly my favourite stop of the day, the Spring Point Ledge Light at Fort Prebble. Getting there required navigating our way through the Southern Maine Community College and a bit of none-permit parking on school grounds but we made it!
I really loved our little lighthouse tour, and I am so pleased with how many we got to see in such a short drive. And I even think Jim enjoyed himself. No matter how nerdy he might have thought it was on the outset!
We spent the rest of our afternoon driving the other way out of Portland to see the islands around Falmouth, and headed back into Portland for an epic happy hour – more about that here!
Being a bit of a lighthouse nerd, I had an awesome time – what do you love to search out on your holidays?
