While Hank and I love visiting lighthouses, we don’t always have access. Many are current Coast Guard stations or part of a private residence, so it’s not possible to get near them (you can only get as close as a perimeter fence) or to go inside. This is why Maine Open Lighthouse Day was so exciting — open access to usually inaccessible lighthouses.
We took off around around 7am and arrived in the Portland area around 9. We’ve been to Portland Head Light before so we skipped it, and since I’m not too steady actually crossing a breakwater, we skipped Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse too. There were two tour buses of folks here at Bug Light so we didn’t fight the crowd; just a quick pic and time to move on.
