OUR FIRST ADVENTURE
We drove about 50 miles round trip to see Bass Harbor where a lighthouse is still standing streadfast and true.
Here is a bit of history
An artist's rendition of the lighthouse
My photo taken at nearly dusk, Lots of shadows.
This is a side view of the lighthouse. The next photo shows the lightkeeper's home which is attached to the lighthouse.
Bass Harbor Bay. The rocks are the danger in this bay to this day.
This is a viw from the path down to the waters edge and the lighthouse. I don't know what the little building has to do wth the lighthouse.
This bell was near the lighthouse and is a mystery. Maybe it was used to also alert the ships that sailed through the bay.
On the way back to our home on wheels we stopped at a very popular ice cream place.
Mmmmmm, I had Butter Peacon and Bill had French Vanila.
I think it might be a regular stop while we are here. The lines were very long and we have to say, the ice cream was delicous.
More of wonderful Maine soon.
