Pemaquid Point LIght - For Blog

Bob recently completed his painting of Pemaquid Point Light  located along the rocky Maine coastline. The lighthouse stands near Bristol and New Harbor, Maine – a picturesque costal village (see “Lobster Wharf” on the Seaside page).

The classic lighthouse at Pemaquid Point is portrayed on the Maine state quarter. One of the first light stations along the Maine coast the fourth-order Frensnel lens is still an active aid to navigation in Muscongus Bay. The Friends of Pemaquid Point Lighthouse open the tower for educational tours 7 days a week from Memorial Day through Columbus Day.

The Cape Cod-style keepers quarters and surrounding Lighthouse Park is managed by the town of Bristol. The Fishermen’s Museum fills the first floor with tidy and informative displays relating to the history of the local fishing industry. The second floor contains a vacation apartment available through a rental agency. Imagine a peaceful evening spent in a front porch rocking chair gazing out to sea as the light flashes every six seconds.
