Good morning everyone. We are having a quiet morning here at Fort
Point Cove at the mouth of the Penobscot River. We are on the first
of 2 four day lighthouse cruises this week. Though the forecast was
dreary we have actually had surprisingly good weather and have seen
10 lighthouses so far.
Today we will get up in to the lighthouse here at Fort Point. Ranger
Terry Cole was stationed here in the 70s and will give us a guided
tour. This park is one of the gems of the state park system. The
grounds of the old fort date back to the Revolution and are just
beautiful with wild flowers everywhere in bloom. I took the kids for
a walk and we just couldn't get over the aroma of the deep woods with
their tiny little flowers carpeting the forest floor.
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
PS I was finally able to get a picture from our cruise on here. This is the Eagle Island Light. Notice the lack of an attached keeper’s house. The government burned it to prevent vandalism. No comment.
