    The lure of lighthouses

    Marshall Point Lighthouse


    While I headed up the Maine coast, making the customary stops at Cape Neddick and Cape Elizabeth Lighthouses, and H.W. Longfellow's house, I happened to make it in time to catch one more the most beautiful sunsets I have seen in recent times at the lesser known Marshall Point Lighthouse. With a long wooden walkway leading into the blue ocean, a sunset behind the endless ocean at one end, and a moon rise on the opposite side, and no gift shop in sight, Marshall Point lighthouse is one of the most elegant lighthouses that decorates Maine's rocky coast. Skip the cars that make it hard to park at Cape Neddick, and the tourists that you have to jostle shoulders with to get a look at the Fresnel lens at Cape Elizabeth, and head straight to the graceful hidden gem that is Marshall Point, for an unforgettable sunset.
