Maine Lighthouses

We got to visit two lighthouses on our trip to Maine.


Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth

Portland Head Light is the oldest lighthouse in Maine. We took the girls here one day while Colin was at hockey camp. They thought it was so nice that they insisted we take him back to see it. So we went another evening so he could see it and so we could get some family pictures. This is where all the pictures in the header at the top of the page were taken.

Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse


We visited the beach and then walked over to see the lighthouse. The kids loved the walk out to get to this lighthouse. I think it was one of their favorite parts of the trip. It made me a bit nervous though.

Oh, I'd looooove to tour lighthouses in Maine. Or anything, really. I would so enjoy visiting Maine. For years I'd never been further north than southern Ohio, but I finally made it up to Connecticut last year, and it was lovely. But Maine... someday!

This is a great post. The lighthouse photos describe so much of Maine.

I just started a blog hop called I Saw it on Vacation. Hopefully it will become a geography resource for homeschoolers. It would be great if you would like to grab my button and link-up this post and your other wonderful vacation posts. Here's the link if you are interested.
