Pemaquid Point Trip

Here are the pictures that we promised to post from our trip to Pemaquid.  We took the wrong road and ended up at Christmas Cove which is on the west side of John’s Bay, however, it provided us with a lot of beautiful views none the less.

John Smith sailed and charted the coast of Maine back in the early sixteen hundreds.  Colonial Pemaquid was settled in 1625, some fifteen years prior to the arrival of the Mayflower at Plymouth, Massachusetts.  We had lunch at the Historic Site overlooking Pemaquid Harbor.  The remains of Fort William Henry along with many foundations of the early settlement still remain.

After our visiting the Colonial Pemaquid Historic Site we made our way to the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse where we strolled around the grounds, climbed on the rocks, visited the gift shop next door, and enjoyed the many views.

Before we knew it, it was getting time to eat again so we took an hour’s drive from Pemaquid Point to Harpswell and Estes Lobster House which is located right on the waterfront.  Old Salty greeted us while Mr. Lobstah told us to “Eat Mor Chikin”.  We had a window table with views across the bay and enjoyed some more wonderful seafood, sorry Mr. Lobstah!
