Wikipedia says: West Quoddy Head in Lubec, Maine, is the easternmost point of the contiguous United States and the closest point to Europe from a point in the fifty States. West Quoddy Head overlooks Quoddy Narrows, a strait between Canada and the United States.
I says: it’s fun going through this film that I recently had developed. I felt like I didn’t really get a great photograph of this lighthouse when @nolte_girl and I visited it last July. I change my mind. I like this one!
Last summer when @nolte_girl and I were on our road trip we camped out one night near Bar Harbor. We decided to not go into Acadia National Park and instead spent a few hours exploring the once quaint fishing village of Bar Harbor. Needless to say, it is no longer as quaint as it once was. Now it’s quite a tourist destination.
We enjoyed the views from the rocky shore and watched the Windjammer taking its passengers out for the day. If you look closely you can see it in front of the island in the left.
This is another image from my recently developed roll of film.
Pemaquid Point Lighthouse and Reflection | Bristol, ME
This lighthouse was built in 1835 and stands 38 feet tall. The top of the lighthouse is open to the public with room for five people at a time. The light keeper’s house has been turned into a museum. The dramatic rocky shore surrounding the lighthouse attracts lots of visitors.
Here is another throwback for you- last summer @nolte_girl and I took a 12 day road trip to VT, NH, and ME. We spent quite a bit of time exploring the coast of Maine. We visited the Marshall Point Lighthouse which was completely fogged in. This is the same lighthouse that Tom Hanks ran out to in Forrest Gump. That movie turns 20 this year! In honor of Forrest Gump’s 20th Anniversary, this image is available as a free desktop wallpaper this month on my website. The link is in my profile.
