    Breakwater Lighthouse, Rockland Maine Harbor

    Favorite thing: The Maine Lighthouse Museum is in Rockland Maine. And a must for the lover of lighthouses.

    There is a great museum store.

    This PHOTO is of the "Breakwater Lighthouse" in the Rockland Maine Harbor. One of many in the area.

    Breakwater Lighthouse, Rockland Maine Harbor

    by ladyanne Written Aug 18, 2005
    Breakwater Light House, Rockland Harbor, Maine

    Favorite thing: This Maine lighthouse is called the Breakwater Lighthouse, it is on a breakwater walkway that is open to the public and is a mile long.

    The lighthouses of Maine....are a history of now and then....a beacon for all sea going wayfarers for generations.

    Maine has the most lighthouse on the Eastern Coastline. Michigan has the most non-coastal lighthouses.

    Beautiful and historical, they are a rare gift to Maine.

    Lobsters and Sailing Boats.

    by ladyanne Written Aug 3, 2005
    Parade of Schooners in Rockland Harbor, Maine

    Favorite thing: Rockland is known for it's Lobster Festival and it's Harbor of Boats and Sailing Vessels.

    One of the best on the Maine coast.
    Plan on spending some time here in Rockland, you can schedule a ride on the "Morning in Maine" Schooner, go to the museum, shop on the Main Street.....go down the Spruce Head and Tenants Harbor Peninsula for touring. And eat out in one of it's many restaurants. The Lobster Claw is a good one.

    Fondest memory: The sailing.....the boats,....the historic feel of the town.....just being in Maine.

    AnitaJRT's General Tip

    by AnitaJRT Written Oct 4, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: SYNOPSIS OF THE TRIP

    Sunday: Fly to Portland, uneventful accept for drive to Rockland (2 hours)
    in my father-in-law's van -- he was flying faster than the plane on which
    we flew to Portland!! The good news is, the radar they use in Maine wasn't
    quick enough to pick him up

    Monday: GREAT wind and POURING rain!! We don't have our sea-legs yet,
    so we're a little tentative about using the head. We're told that we're doing
    over 8 knots; is that fast??? All I know is I can't stand up straight!! No
    one wants to sing any 'show tunes' with me. Am I ever going to dry out and
    get warm????????? Nobody knows that Boone's Farm Wine is good except for
    Herb and I

    Tuesday: Gorgeous blue skies, but no wind. We tack up and down the coast
    (that includes tacking the lunch from side to side of the schooner). It's
    3 o'clock, time for Boone's Farm, and one or two of the other passengers
    not only are singing show tunes with me, but they think that Boone's Farm
    is good

    Wednesday: Perfect sailing weather -- strong winds, bright sun!! We're
    really moving now at over 9 knots, and the side of the schooner is taking
    on water!! Boone's Farm at 3 o'clock, and hey, guess what, I find another
    couple of souls that will sing show tunes!! And for dinner, we had tons of
    lobster on a wonderful, isolated island. Can it get any better than this

    Thursday: Oh Lord, another cold front is moving in. Rain, rain everywhere
    and it's damn cold. 58 degree water spraying into my face is NOT my idea
    of a good time. Time to go below and read a good book. Of course, I'm worried
    about getting seasick, but it's okay, even though now we are over 9 knots.
    The next time I hear the words 'Prepare to Come About', I'll know to move
    the camcorder case off of the beam we have it sitting on, which is above
    my top berth. It makes a terrible noise as it impacts with my head!!

    Friday: Sun and wind, who could ask for more. My sneakers (which have
    been wet since the rain on Monday) have finally dried out. Shore leave early
    in the morning -- guess what we did -- procured more bottles of Boone's farm!!
    AND, the best part is, we have just about all the women on the boat singing
    show tunes during the 3:00 Boone's Farm hours. Isn't this the life?? I also
    had already paid our quarterly premium for the life insurance, so I wasn't
    worried when Herb was climbing the rigging to the topsail

    Saturday: Back into port after catching a strong wind. Rumor has it we
    were over 10 knots!!!! All I know is . . . . we were still clutching a bottle
    of Boone's Farm and singing those damn show tunes

    Coming back from the airport, just wish I could have tacked to the starboard
    side and cut off that semi!!!! Life is good . . . . Maine was FUN
