|Surfing after Sandy|
A couple of surfers hit the beach while we were there. You can see Pond Island Lighthouse in the background. We watched them for awhile and they were constantly being swamped by one wave after the next, sometimes with barely the chance to take a breath. After 20 minutes or so they decided to come out and walk up the beach aways out of the cross currents.
|Remember- there's no such thing as an unloaded gun.|
Next trip out there I'm going out to Fort Baldwin as well.
You can see the markings here dating the cannon to 1865.
If you're headed to or from Popham Beach, there is an excellent historic drive from Rt 209 on Parker Head Rd back to Rt 209. Take your time through here and stop to see some graveyards from the early settlers as well as the alewives run and a couple of lighthouses along the way.
You can use this PDF guide from the Phippsburg Historical Society for more information about what you're seeing.
Along the way- Squirrel Point Lighthouse.
