The lighthouses along with fauna (birds, sea mammals and countless others large and small) ,Maine Coast Botanical Gardens other flora, scenic coves, bays and communities, landscapes, seascapes breath taking sunrises and sunsets and on, on and on!

Here are the tentative lighthouses we will visit:

Ram Island Lighthouse from Ocean Point,

The Burnt Island Light, the second oldest surviving lighthouse in Maine,

Rockland Harbor Breakwater Light,

Hendricks Head Light is a lighthouse in Southport, Maine on the Sheepscot River.

Do a little internet reconnoissance for yourself and see. Reminder, the fee includes admission where there are fees but does not include transportation. We will carpool, caravan to each of the locations.

Things were still pretty frozen when we went but they should be thawed out by now. So make your lodging arrangements if you haven't already.

I can recommend Bayside Inn Bed & Breakfast, 55 Union St. Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538. Peter Sullivan runs the property. Their number is 207-633-3992. Let them know you'll be on our photo excursion as per me and/or Salvatore DeCarlo.

or

Tugboat Inn, 80 Commercial St., Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538. Their number is 207-633-4434. They are situated right on the waterfront.

Bring the whole family and stay all week. There is plenty to do in the area. In Boothbay there is the Railway Museum. Bath, ME has the Maine Maritime Museum. And Owl Head has the Transportation Museum.

I'm already getting excited about this one. Start cleaning up your gear!
