Maine Open Lighthouse Day – Stop #3 – Doubling Point Light

In companion to the Kennebec River Range Lights, the Doubling Point Light marks another right angle turn along the river. Hank was allowed to climb up this lighthouse too, but it was a little too squishy with other people in there with us to take a picture at the top.

Mom, why did you park in a ditch? I hope you have AAA.

Mom, why did you park in a ditch? I hope you have AAA.

Yes, I did end up in a ditch.
Yes, I did have to call AAA to rescue me.
Yes, all the other people visiting the lighthouse wanted to help.
Yes, they thought they could push the car out of the ditch and back onto the road.
Yes, they discovered this was not possible when they walked around the car and realized it was cantilevered into the ditch at about a 30 degree angle.
Yes, they were all relieved that I had AAA, but many offered to call for me if necessary.
Yes, AAA came out to a fairly remote area lickety-split and efficiently pulled me out of the ditch.

No, I did not take a picture of the car in the ditch. Some things are not necessary to record for posterity.


Ok, I’ll go to the lighthouse while you wait for AAA.
