Maine: Lighthouses

Continuing with my Maine posts today!  Sorry for that little break I took.  If you missed the first two posts about our Maine trip, you can find them here and here.  Today I'm going to post about the lighthouses we saw on our trip, there were quite a few!
Again, here is a map of Mount Desert Island where we stayed for a little bit of reference!
Our first full day we went to Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse 
(which is at the very southern tip of the island)
Me and husband!
The shoreline was very rocky, not sandy like we are used to in Georgia.

Then we hiked around to the other side of the lighthouse.
The next day we saw this lighthouse while having a picnic in Acadia National Park.  
We have no idea what the name of this lighthouse was.  
Wouldn't mind being the lighthouse keeper at this one though!
Next up is East Quoddy Lighthouse on Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Canada.  
This lighthouse was gorgeous!  
We couldn't go all the way out to the lighthouse because workers were re-graveling the footpath.  
One of the ladders we had to climb up/down to get to and back from the lighthouse.
That same day we went to the Lubec, Maine lighthouse.  
Lubec is the easternmost point of the United States. 
 I love that all of the lighthouses matched in different patterns of red and white!
Looking at all of these pictures makes me want to go back so bad!  We definitely live in a beautiful country.  Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!

Loved looking at the lighthouse pictures. They were great! I love lighthouses. I am glad you had a good time in Maine. You made some memories you will never forget. That is how I feel about the vacation me and Paw-Paw did when we went to Lancaster PA for a week. It was such a different place than GA. Just beautiful ! Love you Baby Girl. Nan
