|Pemaquid Point Light|
Starting out early in the morning is the best way to take in most of the sights. There will always be something you missed that needs another day to see!
Here are some highlights you can enjoy on your day trip to Pemaquid Peninsula:
|Fort William Henry|
|New Harbor lobster boats|
|Lobster roll at Shaw's on the harbor|
|Artist at work|
|Rachel Carson Salt Pond Preserve|
|Hauling the lobsters|
|Dolphins in Muscongus Bay|
|Franklin Island Light from Hardy Boat|
|Puffin bringing home the (bacon) fish|
|Quiet refuge on Upper Round Pound Rd|
|Picnic at Muscongus Bay Lobster|
|Old Rock Schoolhouse|
From there, head back along Rt 130 to the Pemaquid Loop then to Rt 32 (New Harbor). From May to August you can take Hardy Boat Cruises to Eastern Egg Rock to see the puffins. Stop at Shaw's for lobster roll!
Continue on Rt 32 just past the dock to the Rachel Carson Salt Pond Preserve. (Parking is along the side of the road.)
Just off Rt 32 is Upper Round Pond Rd, a scenic drive, that will take you to the Old Rock Schoolhouse. Back down Upper Round Pond Rd to Rt 32 again, take a left and head to Muscongus Bay Lobster and Round Pond Lobster Co-op. (Stop in at the Granite Hall Store in Round Pond for ice cream!) The Co-op does steamed lobster. Muscongus Bay Lobster does all kinds of lobster plus fried foods.
Stuffed with lobster, continue on Rt 32 to Waldoboro, then head south on Rt 1 and back to the inn. Still hungry? Pull back off Rt 1 in Newcastle and go to the Newcastle Publick House.
